RE: Formula for antenna polarization loss

If I interpreted the formula right (had to move the first close paren
to the end) it would be:

Loss (in DB) = 10*(log base 10(cos(theta))^2)

This says that the loss at 45 degrees is only about 3 dB.  If that is
right then the crosspolarized yagi's make sense.

Is that the correct interpretation?
