RELM Wireless Receives Its First Order From U.S. Department Of Homeland Security Tactical Communications Contract

WEST MELBOURNE, Fla., June 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- RELM Wireless Corporation (NYSE MKT: RWC) today announced that it received its first order under the previously announced Tactical Communications (TacCom) contract issued by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS).  Totaling approximately $128,000, the order is for P25 digital VHF portable radios and related equipment.  This order was competitively bid among suppliers of two-way radio subscriber units on the TacCom contract.

RELM President and Chief Executive Officer David Storey commented, "Although this order is below the dollar threshold at which we normally issue a press release, it is significant because it opens the gate as the first order issued to us under the TacCom contract.  It was also encouraging to win this business in direct competition against other suppliers on the contract.  We have high hopes for this contract as a vehicle through which we can drive sales growth.  This order is the first step."

About APCO Project 25 (P25)

APCO Project 25 (P25), which requires interoperability among compliant equipment regardless of the manufacturer, was established by the Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials and is approved by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.  The shift toward interoperability gained momentum as a result of significant communications failures during emergency events.  RELM was one of the earliest manufacturers of P25-compliant products, and today remains a staunch supporter of the P25 standard.
