RELM Wireless Receives Blanket Purchase Order From U.S. Bureau Of Land Management

Stocks in this article: RWC

WEST MELBOURNE, Fla., July 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- RELM Wireless Corporation (NYSE MKT : RWC) today announced that it has received a blanket purchase agreement (BPA) from the U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM).  The BPA includes the Company's new KNG-Series and legacy D-Series digital P25 portable radios, mobile radios and related accessories, operating in the VHF frequency band.  The BPA has a maximum total value of $2.1 million, with a one-year base period and four one-year option periods.  The value for the base period totals approximately $390,000.  The values for each of the option periods are $448,000, $371,000, $422,000 and $515,000, respectively.  An order for the base period was received and fulfilled in June 2012.

RELM President and Chief Executive Officer David Storey commented, "As we have for so many years, RELM is proud to support the BLM's wildland firefighting professionals.  With so many lives on the line in critical situations, ours is a support role that our entire company takes very seriously, and one that we value a great deal.  The BLM has relied upon thousands of our BK Radio products in wildland fire suppression efforts for over two decades; first deploying our E-Series analog radios, then our G-Series analog radios, and more recently migrating to our P-25 digital D-Series radios.  We are committed to our relationship with the BLM for the full term of this BPA and for many years thereafter."

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.
