Check out the following:


Click on DB36.  It covers all bands from 80 to 6M.  It is a dipole on 80M, 
3el on 30 & 40M, 4 el on 20-10M, and 6el on 6M with an optional kit of two 
extra 6m directors.  You won't need to stack multiple antennas on your mast, 
which will keep the windload down.  Based on your terrain modeling, put it 
at 40' and you'll be happy.
