You should assume that *all* uplinks are active simultaneously subject
to the following:

UO-22: 145.900 rx goes deaf occasionally until software reset
       145.975 reliable uplink - gets congested when .900 goes deaf

KO-23: 145.850/900 both active

KO-25: 145.870 rx normally off. Works but s/c IHU crashes after turned on.
       145.980 reliable uplink.

My understanding (I don't use WISP) is that it tries other freqs if it
doesn't see a response (even NO -1) from the s/c.
