[TowerTalk] Dipole to T conversion

Hi all, 

I read Jim's treatise on limited-space antennas, which was excellent, and noted his confession about frying the bead choke on his 80-m dipole when trying to feed the coax and dipole as a T. 

If one is trying to double-purpose a dipole -- as in using a 40-m dipole as an 80-m Tee -- what considerations are there for choking? 

I can imagine a choke at the dipole feedpoint is ideal for the dipole, but disastrous for the Tee. 

Asking for a friend...
