Bob, I think some major changes have occurred recently. In the past I would not have disagreed with you, but for the past year or two I've been the designated point-person on sending in new satellites to be added to TQSL. The last three I sent were added in less than 24 hours. I still hear of the occasional hiccup, but overall satellites seem to be well integrated and supported lately. The ARRL should be commended for that improvement.

ARRL does not give much attention to Satellite LoTW users and/or operations - IMHO. If there is something needing to be done for DXCC-HF, they fall over themselves working on it - again, IMHO. Maybe we should bombard various League Officials with e-mails to get their attention? I'm not suggesting this as a solution, just a question in the recesses of my mind.
Perhaps, a knowledgeable person from the SAT Community could work with a willing person at the ARRL. They might be able to get things corrected and up-to-date some day. HIHI

Note that the list on the ARRL's website has not been updated with the recent additions of JO-97, FO-99, and QO-100. Also, it lists "EO88", but the correct name in the LoTW configuration file is "EO-88"
