Amateur Radio Volunteers Sought to Assist with Silicon Valley Tour de Cure Communications


Amateur Radio rest stop and SAG volunteers are being sought to assist with communications during the Silicon Valley Tour de Cure on Sunday, June 11 (approximately 9 AM until 4 PM PDT), sponsored by the American Diabetes Association. This is a walk/run/cycling event, and all race legs begin and end at the Hewlett-Packard campus in Palo Alto.

Fred “Fast Freddie” Rodriguez, four-time National Road Race Champion, will be the Celebrity Pro-Rider at the event. Amateur Radio volunteers will need a VHF/UHF mobile capable of at least 25W, and a gain antenna.

Rest stop volunteers can use a beam antenna and battery. HTs will not be sufficient. Contact Fred Townsend, AE6QL (408-425-8216), to volunteer and for additional details.
