A Zero Five should work OK on 40, 30, and 20, and better if you have a 
remote tuner located at the base of the antenna.  With a remote tuner 
operation on 80 may also be acceptable.  Feedline loss without the 
remote tuner can be large.  Above 20 meters the take-off angle goes way 
up and the gain at useful low angles drops by a lot.  Here is some info 
on feedline and ground losses.
