If both dipoles will be used in the CW portion, I would tune the 40m dipole
first. Considering that the 80m dipole should have greater impedance at 7
MHz than the 40m dipole at 3.5 MHz, the 40m dipole will have greater
parasitic effect on the 80m operation, so you should probably adjust it
first. Now, if you want to tune the dipoles up in the band (such as the SSB
portion), or one CW and the other SSB, it makes probably less difference.
Anyone cares to comment?
