Maximum Total Contract Value of $5.5 Million Over Five Years

WEST MELBOURNE, Fla., -- RELM Wireless Corporation (NYSE Amex: RWC) today announced that it has received a blanket purchase agreement (BPA) from the U.S. Navy. This BPA includes the Company's trunked KNG portable radios, mobile radios, repeaters and related accessories, operating in the VHF, UHF and 700/800MHz frequency bands. The BPA has a maximum value of $5.5 million, with a term that commenced on October 28, 2010 and expires on October 27, 2015. The BPA does not specify purchase dates or quantities of equipment.

RELM President and Chief Executive Officer David Storey commented, "This is a very exciting win for us; matching new products with a new customer. It also marks our second award from a branch of the U.S. military since our P25 trunked products were released only a month ago. The early order activity for KNG P25 trunked radios is encouraging, and provides a glimpse of the potential for our expanded product line and capabilities. We look forward to capitalizing on this early momentum."

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.

RELM was one of the first manufacturers to develop P25-compliant technology.
