K7K ---> Most QSOs made by the recent  K7K  IOTA DXpedition to  Kiska Island
(NA-070) have been uploaded to Club Log, and the OQRS  has been enabled  for
Direct and bureau cards (https://clublog.org/logsearch/K7K/2022). Apparently
a few hundred QSOs are still missing, though.  No logs were lost,  but "some
laptops are in transit from Alaska and will not show up for 3-4 weeks", N3QQ
says. Please refrain from sending log check requests  until the complete log
is uploaded around 15 September. Those who do not use Club Log's OQRS should
send their cards direct only to N7RO.
