VK0EK – March 6 – April 20, 2016


Mr. Wally Bieleski, Sales Manager for the Masters Home Improvement store, greets Expedition Leader Robert Schmieder in Perth, Australia. After becoming familiar with the expedition, Bieleski promised support, and Schmieder promised free advertising in return. The store, which is 1/3 owned by Lowes (a familiar store in the U.S.), has a very complete inventory of tools, materials, parts, and other products that can be used for the expedition. In return, the expedition will display Masters logo and advertising on the real-time website DXA. On each of two previous expeditions, DXA attracted about 40 million hits from the technically savvy audience. Located in Perth, this source of support will be especially valuable due to reduced shipping from the U.S. and the favorable exchange rate of the U.S. dollar against the Australian dollar.
