Re: Circular Receive Antennas?

In theory, if the transmited signal is circularly 
polarized, don't you pick up both polarizations by 
orienting a whip antenna at 45 degrees with respect to 
the ground plane or using a rabbit-ears antenna with 
one "ear" perpendicular to the ground plane and the 
other ear parallel to ground? Neither ploy has ever 
seemed particularly sucessful to me, so I assume that 
signal impairments over the transmission path almost 
always result in unpredictable polarization at the 
receiving antenna. Or is there a different explanation?
