Yes. Either will do.

One may work better than the other if your rig uses a different crystal filter for each sideband. Try both.

You'll need to tell the PSK modem which sideband you're using, if you connect the up/down buttons for automatic frequency control. Otherwise the AFC will run backwards and you won't be able to stay on frequency. The TAPR modem has a toggle switch on the front panel for this. Other modems may have a software control. If your modem has no control for this, you can always swap the up and down signals on the cable to the transceiver.
