Maximum squint for AO-40 to be usable

It all depends on your system and a few other orbit particulars.
Ao-40 can be worked on L comfortably at 25deg, the U uplink can
be useable at 35 deg if you have a good receive system and enough
uplink power. Depending on the orbit the sqnt may not be rising as
fast as the range is falling and this can permit you to use the
sat at high sqnts quite easily, it is also what makes the sat
useable to very low powers at low squints.
