I am now starting to get logs from the W7O operators.  I
still need to get logs from about half of the operators,
but I have already received logs with 2360 QSOs for all
bands, modes, and satellites.  Looking only at Logbook
of the World, W7O has confirmations for 721 of those 2360
QSOs, with stations in 26 DXCC countries on 5 continents.
QSL requests have been filling my mailbox since the middle
of last week. Seeing the QSO count, a large order for QSL
cards will be coming soon...  :-)
