this week: "I'm still waiting QSL cards from the printer, which was
organized by the DXpedition. I've printed most of the labels, and as
soon as the cards arrive, I'll begin the next level of fun. I have yet
to do a number of log searches for the gaps in the logs, and as soon as
the DX team provides these I'll start that process. I do plan to send
out partial cards if there was two SASEs sent or enough to send two
mailings. Please be patient (I know it's not easy, but the situation
is a bit out of my control). I'll do what I can to get these cards out
as soon as practical given the arrival of the cards, logs and my work
schedule..... 73"
