i.e. dbi can change from 0 to -26dbi in a 90 degree bank
CP to L (V or H) = -3dbi
Stays -3dbi when the antennae change angles
CP to CP = 0dbi
Stays 0dbi when the antennae change angles
RHCP to LHCP = -26dbi
Stays -26dbi when the antennae change angles
So one should see a marked improvement in multipath rejection and consistancy of video in a turn but not longer range with a CP and L combo.
Doesn't a -3dbi change translate roughly into losing half your distance (range)? If so, this sounds like a lot. I'm trying to decide if I can mix CP and inverted Vs on different planes but have the same vertical patch on my rx.
