    This is just so horrifying! As CQ magazine noted, since hams have provided communication for this event for many years, there may be some Amateur Radio operators caught in the explosions. I pray not.

  • Mike VE3WDM:

    Good evening Chuck, not good at all came home this evening to the news. If you ask me who ever it is…it’s just a cowardice act! I heard on CNN an 8 year old has passed away along with many others.

    This is a terrible world we live in.My prayers go to everyone injured,died and First Responders who help the survivors and for all the Ham Operators that providing communication.
