I would like to put up something that I can use on at least 160,80,& 40. No high trees here, I will need to use flag poles for support (25 or 30 ft), so antenna will be NVIS. If you can help me, contact me off list.

It isn't clear from your posting whether you want NVIS,
or are commenting that you are stuck with it.  If you
don't actually want NVIS, then it seems like a 43
foot vertical with a remote base tuner fills the bill.
You apparently have room for radials, if you have room
for a 210 foot dipole.  You can buy everything you need
off the shelf, no modeling.

It will also cover 60 meters, and other bands.

BTW, NVIS doesn't apply on 160 meters AFAIK.
