I would say you're correct...  Try listening for AO-40 when close-in and
heading out, about MA 15 to 25.  I hear it about as strong or stronger
than UO-11 (on a good pass) at that point.  I get it about 7 or 8 S
units above the noise on the FT736R I'm using as an IF when it's close. 
I loose it somewhere beyond 50K km.
