      I uploaded about 100 satellite QSOs to LoTW yesterday (several hundred to
      go, I have to enter them from paper logs into Dxbase 2005 first). Here is
      one of the ADIF records from the file I created under DXB's Selection
      Wizard:

      Here is the QSL match from LoTW for that QSO. Note that LoTW has set
      Receive Band to 70CM, which is of course incorrect.

      Note that the Receive Band field says 70CM, which is of course wrong (mode B
      downlink is 2M). How did this happen? All of the satellite QSOs I uploaded
      to LoTW from DXB have the same error.

        Hi Bill
         

        The receive band is set to equal the (transmit) band if the receive band

        is not supplied in the ADIF record. For satellite contacts, this doesn't

        matter. See:
