We calculate the distribution function of the degree of polarization of an initially polarization scrambled signal propagating long distances in an optical fiber. We show that a significant repolarization can occur for modern-day parameters. We estimate how far the polarization dependent loss must be reduced before repolarization becomes negligible.
