Default 800MHz yagi vertical vs horizontal orientation

I just indoor installed a Wilson 301129 800-900MHz yagi for 800MHz SMR reception. It wants to be mounted horizontally, and when it it turned vertically, the signal drops out. Why is this happening, or is this expected? Very pleased with the performance vs the window mount 800MHz Wilson I was using previously. The target transmitter is in line with the antenna, about 15 miles away pointed about 90 degrees off of my location, so a tough signal to pull in.

The orientation and angle of direction was tuned on the scanner app showing the RSSI...don't laugh at my setup! :-P

UPman, please suggest variable tone/EQ with bass reduction as volume increases on the new scanners!
