I have used LOTW with satellite contacts for several years.  I even uploaded
my old contacts back into the 80's.

I do not know what issues you may have had, but it works great for me.  It
is seamless with most logging programs.  Just click and the contacts are

I use n3fjp's ACLog.

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.
