Hi Mark-
For satellite QSOs, you need to enter BOTH xmit and receive bands, since they are different.
>From the presentation:
"Logging QSOs made through the Amateur satellites is not much different than logging any other QSO on the air.
The standard QSO information - callsign, date, time, band and mode are logged.
But to receive proper credit for a satellite QSO, the log entry must also include the receive band, propagation mode ("satellite"), and the satellite name."

| The PowerPoint on LoTW advises logging and uploading the receive (downlink) band. When I did this, I was regularly chastised and told that the correct procedure was to designate the transmit (uplink) band. So which is correct?

ARRL has provided a PowerPoint presentation on Logbook of The World focused on satellite operation in the ARRL Online Library. There is also an Intro to LoTW PowerPoint available.
Both may be found at www.arrl.org/library, in the PowerPoint area.
