In the Northern Hemisphere AO-51 has been consistently RH for the last three months I have been listening. with my limited knowledge I think the S/C is stabilized and will have the LH rotation in the Southern Hemisphere as the back side of the antenna will be pointed towards Earth.

Are you referring to the analog downlink or the digital downlink?  I think they have opposite polarizations.  My antennas are fixed RHCP, so I can't test this.
