You may want to e-mail lotw-help @ arrl.org about that.  I used "ARISS" as
the satellite name for the ISS cross-band repeater, and "AO-7" for that
satellite, without any problems.  I was only waiting for SO-67 to be put in
that system, by the time I started uploading my QSOs a few weeks ago
(it is in there now).

LOTW was down for some period of time yesterday (Sunday) afternoon,
so maybe something has happened to it in the recent past.
