If you have a "tuner" the 80m dipole should load up just fine on 40m... might also work on 15 m and other bands. Not sure what vertical you're using but tonight I was on my Butternut HF-6V vertical because the dual sloper wouldn't load up on 80m. Put some radials under vertical it may help.

My little CS-108G struggles to put out 10 watts on most bands without going into ALC issues, red dashes on the screen. On 80M it's pushing out 15 to 20 without a problem. Using MFJ-874 to measure output vs what it shows on the radio's display.
Wasn't having much luck with my vertical, so switched to horizontal dipole for 80M. Seems to be doing a little better.
Thanks for the contacts. Over 90 now. Happy with that as my first TDW contest. Hopefully get over 100 before it ends tomorrow night.

Yes. It was rough--a lot of QRN here--but got it.
