Hmmm is right. I thought that the polarization of any skywave signal
was indeterminate. Is that not the case?

What's the date and location of launch? Frequency? I'll be pleased to
post on the some of the long-haul sailor's boards and announce on some
of the ocean nets. You might get some more data points. We're coming
up on the time of year when transatlantic crossings are picking up.
