hello Ed...I have found that with AO-7 over the years...it depends... of what I am not sure..be it satellite orientation, local issues, or simply "propagation gods". There are times when switching between L & R on either up or down link will improve reception. My current installation is currently not wired for switching and defaults to RHCP for up and down. I do not appear to have any issues with AO-7, I do plan to connect up the switching simply because, it's there.
