Chris, Add one more to disagree with you. I have crossed yagis on 2M and
430 that are used for both terrestrial and satellite. I can switch between
polarities and sometimes it makes little difference, but on some passes,
the difference is quite pronounced. When trying to dig out a really weak
signal, even a few dB is quite helpful.
