Can I repair a gate valve?

I have a valve that controls my outdoor spigots. It leaks terribly, but only when it is open. Is this something that can be fixed with replacing parts, or do I need to sweat on a new valve?

Is it leaking around the stem? If so, you might just be able to tighten the packing nut a little bit.
