[amsat-bb] STRaND1 polarity shift observation

During my last pass at 0332Z, max elevation 45 degrees out over the Pacific, 
I noticed that STRaND1 was stronger when I selected LHCP while approaching 
TCA.  After TCA, RHCP was stronger while it was receding.  I believe this 
cubesat uses a whip, so not sure what is causing this.

Anyone have an idea why?
