Weather is nice,
Time to put up antennas.

Now I know most like to go CP, But I'm on a limited budget. So it will 
need to be a traditional linearly polarity yagi,

Of course I can mount them vertically or horizontally polarized.
And if it was just one band, is there ny preference to vert or horiz?

I don't see any, except from the man made noise issue when on low 

is there any best polarity?

I'm planning on a side by side 2 meter and 70 cm set up
2 meter vertically polarized on one end of a cros boom, and the same on 
the other side but 70 cm.

This way I can get away with using a metal cross boom.
