I have seen the question arise as to why some satellite contacts uploaded
to LOTW show up as 2m, 70cm etc rather than satellite. I have one contact
with Venezuela that is like this. In It appears that I uploaded using
"prop_mode sat" like it should be. It also appears that the other station
must have uploaded it as a 2m contact. Thus it is credited as 2m's. Am I
thinking right here? Has anyone found this to be the reason for this type
