I don't understand the reasoning for using double bazookas on 40 and
80. The only thing that a bazooka provides is wider bandwidth, and that
increase is so miniscule that it doesn't seem to be worth while. It
won't begin to cover all of 75/80 meters, and usually you don't need the
extra bandwidth on 40. A crossed double bazooka will increase the
bandwidth, at the expense of lower gain, but that will still not be
enough to cover all of 75/80. If you are in need of a coax fed antenna
that will cover all of 75/80 consider this one.
Of course a dipole fed with ladderline works also but routing ladder
line and retuning is a pain for some.
