you just wouldn't bother with 80m,
however, you on the right track at looking at cheap dedicated xcvr,
I have been thinking about it myself,
so what you could do is take the 80m xcvr and modify/adapt it to work on 40m.
Any radio can be made to work anywhere, its just a matter of how much time, money & effort you want to put into it.
