Ide have to disagree on both. It's a space craft..an entire different
entity. Its an orbiting spacecraft, that can be taken out of orbit at any
time, and not @ random.. probably de classifying it as a sat.

That's just a stab at the real reason.. works in my head tho.

Subject: [amsat-bb] ISS a Satellite or an airplane?

Can someone sanity check me, please?  I'm trying to convince a guy at the
ARRL that the ISS needs to be added to the LoTW as a satellite and he says
it is not valid because it isn't a satellite but rather an airplane. 

Anyone out there help me with this?
