Special Event Certificate: A Special Event commemorative certificate – 8 ½ x 11 inches, is available to all who contacted one of the WA2LQO stations in July 2009. The certificate will be mailed flat if you provide a large, self-addressed, stamped mailing envelope ($1.08 postage required for US addresses). If you provide a smaller self-addressed, stamped envelope, the certificate will be folded, and $0.64 is sufficient postage. All certificate requests should be sent to the WA2LQO Callbook address (70 Dewey Street, Huntington, NY 11743) with your SASE.
If you prefer to send “green stamps”, 1 is sufficient for a folded certificate; 2 are required if you wish to have an unfolded certificate mailed flat.
About Apollo 11: The flight log of the Apollo 11 mission is available at http://history.nasa.gov/ap11ann/apollo11_log/log.htm
The Grumman Amateur Radio Club, WA2LQO, sponsored a special event station operation in July 2009 commemorating the 40th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 “First Man on the Moon” mission. View the log here . This special event operation recognized the incredible feat accomplished by the thousands of employees, suppliers and partners in achieving the Lunar Landing and safe return of our Astronauts in July 1969. The Lunar Module that delivered Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin to the lunar surface and returned them to the orbiting Command Module was the 5th LM (LM-5) produced by Grumman Aircraft Engineering Corporation, with final assembly taking place in the Bethpage, New York, Plant 5 facility. A total of 13 LM units were produced, 10 of which were flown in space, see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apollo_Lunar_Module for more information. Plant 5 was also home to the Grumman Amateur Radio Club for many years following the Apollo era.
