There seem to be a significant number of AO-40 users who are going the balcony/roll-out approach.  They're on the air, but would they be on U/V or V/U?

I think the answer would have been YES if the AO40 V-band downlink still worked.  But it's unlikely that there will ever be another high orbit hamsat with a V downlink as strong as AO40's short-lived V downlink.
