Just discovered if I bypass the inductor (attach the red and blue coil tap wires together) and use one of the radials and attach it to the top of the antenna, and run the attached wire like an inverted L, then it does 40m. It exhibited a perfect swr on 7.250 and around 2.0:1 on the lower portion of the 40m band. I think I can also make it work like a 2m 5/8 wave vertical antenna too. It involves the idea of only deploying 4' of the telescoping antenna element and utilizing the existing inductor coil as a matching system. That will give me 2m through 40m band coverage using a single portable antenna.
