I think so. I had the same problem with 40, 30, and 20 in a fan -- the 
30 was too close in length.  From my experience, an 80/40 fan loads and 
works very will on 15M and 17M, with the expected lobing from any 
antenna that is much longer than a half wave. Before I had my SteppIR, I 
ran 30M, 17M, and 12M on my 80/40 fans and was very happy with them. I 
still use them on 30M, and have 100 countries confirmed on that band.

73, Jim
