On my way into work today, I heard about the earthquake, tsunamis and the resulting devastation that have hit Japan. Immediately, my thoughts turned to fellow Ham Radio blogger, Leo JJ8KGZ, author of "A Brasspounder's Cafe" who lives in Northeastern Japan. Looking at the maps of the devastation provided by the BBC, it looks like the epicenter of the heaviest damage is a bit to the south of Leo's home QTH.
My thoughts go out to Leo and all our brother and sister Amateur Radio ops and their families who live in Japan, and indeed, to the whole country. My prayers, and I'm sure the prayers of a lot of us here in the USA go out to our Japanese friends at this most difficult time.
