Billy, the "it ain't polarized after it's reflected" is another "old hams 
tale." The literature does not support that fable, nor does practical 

You will find many signals that are too weak to work on a beam that are quite 
workable on a decent vertical.  If you encounter fading changing the antenna 
polarization will quite often make a workable signal out of one below the 
noise level. 

So don't argue with the old man. Try it and be convinced.
