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.
