Yes Art,
 a relay on both will stop interaction between the antennas also it will
help prevent noise being induced into any RX antenna.

I was considering adding a second vertical element to my 160 inverted L.
This one would be roughly a quarter wave tall for use on 80.

I tried modelling in Eznec, but wasn't comfortable with the results. I may
have screwed it up.

Has anyone tried it for real? Is it a big compromise on either band? Would a
switch at the feedpoint have any benefit?

My inverted L has about 50 radials.
