I seem to recall reading that ao-40 could support multiple uplinks.  If
that's the case, perhaps mode UX and mode LX could be used at the same time,
for those who haven't access to the 70cm band.  

I don't imagine it would affect the bird's power budget, except that
a lot more people could try out the x-band downlink.
