    This antenna claims to be better for picking up signals around
    obstructions. Any truth to this? Cf Multi-polarized antennas.

    sounds a little bogus to me?

    Meanwhile, at the alt.internet.wireless Job Justification Hearings, Jeff
    Liebermann chose the tried and tested strategy of:
    Does this apply even if you have multiple clients with differing
    polarisations? I assume you're making a distinction between splitting a
    single RF feed into multiple polarisations, and connecting a differently
    polarised antenna to a diversity connector.
    Yes, that's what I would have assumed. So, the extra paths the signal takes
    outweighs having the correct polarisation?
