Email sent to Chip W6POO from JE1LET after QSO on 15m.
Thank you very much for many many warm-hearted email from all over the
world. We deeply appreciate your warm thoughts and expression of condolence and
My wife Naoko and I are all okay. NO DAMAGE. But, 3 hours power outages every day. Missing Item. Etc.. We had another strong Earthquake last night. The center of the Earthquake was located near Mt' FUJI. About 100km from here.
We are still afraid that there are some aftershocks and the nuclear danger.
Ken JO7CVU and his family are all okay. He gave me a phone call last Sunday
via emergency satellite from Sendai in JA7. He was in his shack at the first
big hit last Friday. He went to outside to see what happen, then saw a big
Tsunami. He took refuge from the tidal wave on a hilltop. Very close.
He lost his shack and tower by the Tsunami. They were only about 100m inland
from the ocean.
My radio is all okay. I will turn my antenna to your warm room.
We want to say to you all, " ARIGATOU" from the bottom of our heart.
Masa and Naoko.
