LoTW works just fine for SAT QSO's now. As long the ADIF filefor your operations is filled-out correctly.

I have not been satellite active for several years (mostly because of no birds to actually talk through for more than 3 seconds at a time). LOTW was fairly new when I stopped operating satellite, but at that time the general comment from those that were using LOTW was that particularly for satellite operations, LOTW was such a pain to use, and really did not support satellite ops without putting in incorrect data (it did not understand our cross band operation or that there are actually more than one satellite in use). Maybe someone who is using it currently can advise if works better for satellite operations now. One of these days I will get back on the birds, but I do have several thousand satellite QSOs that I could log from years back if there were really any reason to do so.
