Comtrex Communications Announced Today the Award of a Supply Contract That Will Equip the Philippine Navy With Wireless Audio Accessories

NIAGARA FALLS, NEW YORK--(CCNMatthews – Apr. 4, 2006) –

Attention Business Editors:

Comtrex ( announced that it will, under a sub-contract, supply magnetic induction wireless earpieces and three-wire surveillance kits to a prime contractor for the Foreign Military Sales (FMS) program. These audio accessories will end up in use by the Philippine Navy.

Three-wire surveillance kits attach to portable radios and are constructed in such a way that they allow the user to have a PTT (push-to- talk) down their sleeve and in their palm, a second wire with a microphone is clipped to their lapel and a third wire houses a speaker and acoustic tube which is placed in the ear. The wireless earpiece comes with two components, a neck loop inductor and an ear receiver. The neck loop replaces the acoustic tube portion of the three-wire kit and is worn around the neck under a shirt. This loop transmits the audio signal to the earpiece, which fits inside the ear canal. This type of set-up is typically used in convert applications.

"We are pleased to have been awarded this large purchase and anticipate delivery of the complete order by the end of April 2006", said Patrick Armstrong, Managing Partner of Comtrex Communications.
