Although there's not much in it right now, when AO-40 was around South
Centering was definitely preferable from the Northern hemisphere.

If your antennas flip well, it's six of one and half a dozen of the other.
Personally I prefer the antennas not to flip if I can avoid it, if only to
reduce the possibility of my feeder getting mangled up!
