Suppose a rubber duck antenna with the typical radiation pattern as shown below,
also the manufacture specifies that this monopole has vertical polarization.
If I put the "vertical monopole" in a horizontal orientation, the polarization changes to horizontal?
So the antenna has lineal polarization and the orientation of the antenna will determine if it has horizontal or vertical? Also the radiation pattern will shift from Vertical to Horizontal and vice-versa? Like the monopole antenna what kind of antennas will be affected for this phenomenon.
Also I would like to know if the polarization is affected by obstacles? Like Faraday Rotation in ionosphere that satellite communications needs to overcome.
