Do you know if satellite QSOs are reflected in the 2m ClubLog results? If so, it's easy to see if your station is in the log and know that those "insurance" contacts are unnecessary. (As of yesterday, my satellite QSO was not shown in ClubLog. But I know it takes awhile, especially if weather has everything shut down.)

Some of you may have noticed on @WW2DX's Twitter feed that bad weather
forced them offline in the middle of the night between 0200-0700 UTC
today. It has been raining heavily with strong wind gusts. When
weather clears, they expect to get back online and operate.
I would recommend if you aren't in the log yet, listen on all
available passes with mutual footprint. Their six digit gridsquare is
