Note: In August 2008, I logged about 50 East Asian TPs with the E100 + Wellbrook Phased Array combination from our normal Grayland, WA site.  Although I noted most of these stations (the stronger Japanese, Koreans and Chinese) during this DXpedition, I only formally logged stations that I had never before heard on an Ultralight radio.

Total NEW TPs: 36 + 4 Alaskans   Total TP stations using an E100 + Wellbrook Phased Array = 125
