I was curious what this antenna is and google cannot seem to find it.  Are
the poor reviews quality related or regarding performance?

I tried to convince Ray W5EW to replace his 6BTV vertical with a Hy-Gain
AV-480 but the reviews on eHam were so bad he has decided not to spend the
money. The 6BTV has 30 radials and does well in the RTTY Contests he enters
running low power.

How do we over ride the poor reviews from hams who probably have no idea of
how to set up a vertical?
