I was at the W9DXCC in Chicago the last couple of days and one of the
speakers was Sean, KX9X, ARRL Contest Branch Manager. He mentioned that
around the first of the coming year the ARRL will begin accepting LOTW for
the VUCC award. He said "now is the time to start uploading your QSOs."
Just a "heads up."
Personally, I like LOTW -- I have a couple of DXCC entities confirmed via
LOTW where I have been unable to get a card. I expect this will happen with
satellites also as there are several grids I've worked via satellite where
no cards have been forthcoming. (FWIW, about 23% of my QSOs have been
confirmed via LOTW and that percentage has been increasing over time.)
