These antennas attampt to skew the polarization using edge trimming methods. The problem is that the antenna still retains most of it's linear capabilities and only skews the pattern slightly. What results is an elipse for a polarization pattern. This is very good for when you have a linear TX antenna as you will have about 1-2db loss (instead of 3db) when up right and about 5-6db loss in a 90 degree bank. However with a circular TX antenna, there will be some loss and might not reject multipath interference as well.
