When receiving fm by Sporadic E is antenne orientation critical for reception similar for tropospheric dx or is not important ?

For Sporadic E it is not critical though most dxers will prefer horizontal orientation.

I have found that many low powered vertical stations have been received at good strength on horizontal poarisation. Low power being 500 watts down to 20 watts (as listed in FMList)
