Circular polarization question

Being that I am new to the Satellites and to AMSAT(new member as of Dayton 
2002), I have a quick and maybe a dumb question. I just acquired the m2 
2MCP14 and 436CP30 antennas. I see that there is an option that allows you 
to switch between LHCP and RHCP. How useful is it to have this ability. 
When I'm receiving a signal that is RHCP and I'm set for LHCP or vice 
versa, what amount of loss will I experience. Is it equal to the amount of 
loss experienced between Horizontal and Vertical polarization on the linear 
setup? Thank you for any assistance.
