No, that's actually a good question.  Usually, satellites follow the normal sideband plan for the downlink, and then you have to set your uplink depending on the satellite.  So, with FO-29's downlink in the 70cm band, you'd be listening to the downlink on USB, and transmitting on the uplink on LSB.  

If you did transmit on USB, your signal would come back down in LSB.  Nothing illegal about that, but by breaking with convention most aren't listening that way and it would slow down making a contact.

Good luck,
