Several stations that does not specify Propagation Mode = SATELLITE and upload their log to LoTW it will match as a terrestrial / point to point QSO (LoTW shouldn't match, but it does), even if the other station has specified Propagation Mode = Satellite. This mostly happen due the incompatibility of ADIF data between QRZ.com, eQSL, ClubLog, etc which does not contemplate Propagation Mode field and operators use their generated ADIF files to upload to LoTW. The way it is now VUCC via LoTW trust got seriously compromised.

Thanks Bob for your answer but this is not a question it is a statement/information and ARRL needs help with LoTW. 73 Ed PY2RN.
