Pete, as I understand it, there are two important lines in the .adi file
which must be included for LOTW to recognize it as a sat contact...
examples are shown below:
Propagation Mode: <PROP_MODE:3>SAT

Satellite Name: <SAT_NAME:4>AO-7

I've found that some logging software does _not_ have these two items  
available as  "fill in" boxes,
although I believe you can edit the .adi file manually to add these  
See the link below for all the details.
I hope I read your question correctly and this will be helpful to you.
