I want to know if Yaesu even exists anymore. They are in Fukushima where the destroyed nuclear plant is. I e-mailed Yaesu USA & asked, but they thanked me for my good wishes, & didn't say any more. Hope they are still around. GARY N4KVE

Here's a good link
Japan Earthquake - Update 4

Regarding Vertex Standard
http://www.vxstd.com/jp/index2.html
Download the pdf file in japanese only.

Everyone is accounted for and OK, the plant suffered minimal damage, but due
to the Nuclear power plant issues they are taking a wait and see attitude
as to when they will start up normal operations.
