A 40/80 meter coil-loaded inverted V dipole antenna is an excellent fit for a small urban lot or any other restricted outdoor space.  However, tuning this antenna for efficient operation in both bands can be a bit challenging, especially where loading coils are used.

In this well-made video from Dave Tadlock (KG0ZZ), we learn a few ways to make the tuning procedure a bit less painful, while making sure each of our two bands is operating at peak efficiency.  Dave does a thorough job of explaining what to to without wasting time or materials.
