I hope that all our fellow Hams over there made it through ok.
I listened last night at 4AM EST on 40M, because I often hear then at that time but nothing from JA last night.

Well there's a news article here saying police in Ichinoseki are using amateur radio to gather information: http://www.iwanichi.co.jp/ken/item_23064.html

Once the situation has stabilized, we'll probably get news through the JARL about what amateurs in Japan have done after the disaster.

Currently, the latest news posted on the JARL's website was posted a few hours before the quake, and was about emergency communications rules.

As for hearing Japanese stations, yes the DX clusters show Japanese stations heard in the US, Europe, Asiatic Russia, etc. but I don't know if any those are in the affected area.

JARL Regional HQ station JA7RL is now involved in emergency communication to support rescue and disaster relief coordination.

Ken JA1CJP said they are using 7 MHz SSB, 144 MHz SSB/FM and 430 MHz SSB/FM.

The freqency 7043 controlled by JR3QHQ the Osaka branch manager of JARL.

He is gathering incident information on radio and forwarding this information on the internet.

The channel 7075 is operated by JL3YSP in Wakayama occasionally. While 7030 kHz is the JARL emergency communication frequency in their bandplan is in use by JA7RL (JARL regional HQ station).

I got some messages for assistance on PSK yesterday.  Forwarded them to the American Red Cross.  The requests were for blankets, food, water and tents.

I spoke to a station about 80km north of Tokyo about 2 weeks ago on 20m. We talked for about 15 minutes and he told me he had roof damage to his house from quake. He also told me that at least one reactor vessel had been breached.  He further told me that he knows his country will successfully cold shutdown reactors in question over time but they are very worried about long term effects of radiation.
