He is EXTREMELY helpful and I'd recommend his software to ANYONE!

I already contacted him about this problem and told me to just use one
of the "other" fields for the satellite.  I renamed it satellite but
there is still a disconnect between ACLog and LoTW.  I ended up manually
modifying my satellite log using TQSL (which is a major pain!).  After I
did that I uploaded the contacts into LoTW with no problems.  When I
imported that "fixed" data into ACLog but none of the satellite data
showed up (the contact information did but not the satellite name or
freq information or propagation type).

I'm not sure of the exact resolution to this but maybe N3FJP would be
able to remedy this in the next version.  I feel like you would need a
drop-down list of the satellites as if you don't put them in exactly
right then the contact didn't happen.
