I used the circular polarization to listen this beacon. It seems, the 3 dB in signal are lost, but the level of signal (especially with QRO 600 W set) allows to receive even CW audibly. Dish size i've used - 0.9 m, moon noise > 0.2 dB.
Truly 73, Dimitry Fedorov, UA3AVR.

We must also remember that since Serge is about 1/2 way to Europe from VE4, his polarity setting may need to be in the middle of Horizonatal and Vertical. I discussed these and other concerns with Serge yesterday....so now Serge has some work to do !
