Amateur Radio, Radar, Lidar & Radio on Postage Stamps

41aSnqR1ktL

I love  collecting stamps and vintage baseball cards and have quite a collection of both… but I have NEVER seen this many RADIO STAMPS in one setting!  Kirt Blattenberger, KB3UON, has a really cool website with lots of neat things to read.  This caught my eyes INSTANTLY.  Thank you, Kirt!  His quote and stamp array begins below.

************    ************    ***********    **********    ***********

Over the past many decades, my involvement in stamp collecting (philately) has waned and ebbed with the amount of time available to dedicate to it. Commemorative stamps – from all countries – have always been of the greatest interest to me. Even if you are not a philatelist, your interest in radio should be piqued by the large number of postage stamps that have been issued in radio’s honor. Although I do not own most of the stamps pictured here, there are some that are in my collection. This is a small cross-section of what is available. Over time, I have added to the list and will continue to do so. Please let me know if you have relevant stamps to add.

I was amazed to discover how many countries have postage stamps recognizing the important role that weather radar has played in history.

Note: Many of these images are uncredited because although I might have retrieved them from a particular website, they appear to be replicated in many places. Therefore, the true origin is not known. My policy is to always provide attribution as part of the “Fair Use” law when the source is certain. I will be glad to link back to the owner’s website if evidence of ownership is provided.
