Modern modems are FULL DUPLEX meaning that they can send AND receive
simultaneously at the connection speed. There's really no reason to
artificially split 24k into a TX and RX component. Both directions get 24k.

Now it still might be a good idea to limit your TX bandwidth to less than
28k to avoid overloading some reflectors and getting bumped off. But its
not because of the modem.
