Early last year I finally got around to uploading satellite contacts (also following the guidelines at http://www.arrl.org/files/file/LoTW%20Instructions/N5JB.pdf) and got these results:
You have 4,675 QSO records
You have 135 QSL records

Although I always log the first contact with a station, I do not log many duplicate contacts with the same station in the same grid square... but I was hoping to get a lot more QSLs than that!  3% seems to be the going rate.  I think paper QSLs are going to be with us for a long time--besides, I like the records for posterity.  Having a few choice QSLs hanging on the wall is a whole lot more engaging to grandchildren than sending them a link with an ap for their Iphone to see your LoTW records :-)
