Next time I am involved in a ham class I plan to make it a point to
mention that it's "USB everywhere".  The only place where the
convention is to use LSB is 160/80/40 m (because reasons) and on the
uplink of inverting transponders (because that's how they work).
Everything else, unless a station is being operated by a contrarian,
is USB.
