Perhaps its an issue that its 'form' changes when things are docked to it,

Don't get me wrong, Ide love it to be classified as a sat myself.. just
adding to ths discussion.

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?
