[amsat-bb] LoTW still a big failure for checking satellite QSOs

This has been already taken to LoTW admins at ARRL but they insist in blaming the "sat operator" as she/he registered the QSO with wrong/missing information, which is true, but the system, LoTW the case, should avoid confirming a match between two stations when one of them does not specify PROPAGATION MODE = SAT. What LoTW actually does when one station specifies it and the other not is to confirm a match QSO but the credit goes to the terrestrial VUCC on VHF, UHF, etc. which, in my opinion, put high risk to terrestrial VUCC credibility through LoTW confirmations.
