Tour de Paris 2020

When: September 26th, 2020

The Tour de Paris is in its 36th year and once again the RRVARC is helping out with communications for this great event!

As you look at the route map above you will see things like “RS1”.  That is a rest stop.  RRVARC radio operators man those rest stops, are at the Love Civic Center and anywhere else where communication assistance is required.

This years event was postponed from July to September 26.  Please mark your calendar and email Kelly Collins (W5KJC) or Phillip Beall (W5EBC) and tell them where to insert you in the table below.  The table is prepopulated with the names of some regular participants where they were located in 2019.  If you are one of those participants and you will not be involved this year please let us know and we will remove your name.  If you see that a spot is filled and you still want to participate there please indicate this in your email to us.  Also, there are often times more than one operator at a rest stop.  As we get volunteers we will further add detail to the list below.
