Neither could I.  I think it is just historical, because no one has an
uplink there, that the "downlink" label just stuck...  But as I presented
at the AMSAT conference, I think it wouild make an ideal newbe-uplink band
because everyone would be using the sam nominal 25W type 10m rig for
uplink and because of the size of antennas, just about everyone would be
using a WHIP or dipole and have about the same ERP...
