Apollo 16 was the first mission to visit the lunar highlands. John Young and Charles Duke spent 71 hours on the surface while Ken Mattingly remained in the Command Module in lunar orbit. There were 3 EVAs each using the Lunar Rover developed at MSFC. More details on the mission are available here.

Every once in a while we get a self addressed stamped envelope (SASE) for a special event that isn’t like the rest.
Once we received one with a QSL card and no signal report. I’ve also received several printed pages with QSL information from folks who don’t either keep a cardstock, don’t often hunt paper, or are awaiting cards due to recent changes (location, callsign, etc.). Occasionally we get SASEs from Short Wave Listeners (SWLs).
Today we received an “Old School QSL” in with the SASE. I felt that I should share it with everyone.
NN4SA will be operating field day again this year from the picnic area pavilion.
Details to follow, meanwhile see what happened last year at 2015 Field Day
