Secrets of reception, polarization

I'm starting this thread to discuss polarization and circular polarizations usefulness in reducing multipath interference if you live close enough to one of these stations that use circular polarization.

If you do you can rotate your antenna from laying flat to standing straight up (and any angle in between with no loss in signal (equal signal in vertical and horizontal planes.
And since the reflected signals aren't likely to be in the same polarization as your antenna (at some angle you pick to optimize this effect) reflected multipath signals can be attenuated 20 Db or more.
