The ARRL report that the Réseau Luxembourgeois des Amateurs d’Ondes Courtes (RL) - that country’s IARU (International Amateur Radio Union) member-society - is celebrating its 75th anniversary.

In honor of this milestone, Luxembourg’s Entreprise des Postes et Télécommunications (P&TLuxembourg) has issued a €.60 postage stamp (about 80 cents in US dollars). P&TLuxembourg is that country’s government owned corporation for mail and telecommunications. This is one of three commemorative stamps issued by Luxembourg in 2012.
There are about 500 radio amateurs in Luxembourg. As part of the 75th anniversary celebrations the RL is launching a special RL 75th Anniversary Award. During 2012 the special callsign LX75RL will be activated by its members and counts towards the award.
