No Dave
   no polarity switcher on the downlink here, and yes I have noticed 
difference on the uplink, like I said, wind a helix for 435 backwards and see 
what happens... and what does the uplink have to do with the downlink? well I 
would guess that if you don't get into the sat receiver very well thats its 
not likely it will come out the other end very well :-).

the point of my post was not to imply that all ills on ao40 are because of 
circularity, it was to say that there are many things that can trip you up, 
and you should never throw away gain, and more gain on receive is always 
better than more gain on xmit, don't you agree?
