Is there a logging standard that will make sure that LOTW finds the "match"?

I know the time does not have to be dead-on, but what other fields are a 
must? Does anyone know, or is there a document that tells the satellite 
community what needs to be in the log? If I work AO-51 for example, what are

the minimum number of fields that must be in the ADI (upload) file?
thanks 73 Bill K3SV
