Great! Thanks for those uploads to LOTW.

That might not be entirely correct. LOTW has only been available for
VUCC applications for 3 months, and many satellite operators have
not bothered with LOTW until that announcement. I do enjoy sending
and receiving QSL cards, and have not stopped that even though I am
also uploading QSOs to LOTW. More stations are uploading satellite
QSOs to LOTW, and now ARRL needs to start processing the VUCC
applications it has (among those, my initial satellite VUCC application).
