    If i had a horizontal antenna and a friend 30 miles away had a circular polarized(x-pol) antenna. would there still be a 20db loss?

    Nope...only a 3db loss

    I used a long axial mode helical beam on 902MHz to work both horizontal and vertical polarization.

    2m or any band

    On the lower HF bands your short path signal would be best at high angles, polarization would not be as critical as the launch angles of the antennas (height above ground is a consideration).
    On higher HF and U/VHF bands, a short path, polarization has much more effect.
