Office Depot, Canada

JACKSONVILLE, Fla.--(CCNMatthews - Mar 22, 2005) -

Expanding the retail store-front availability for its products in North
America, ParkerVision, Inc. (NASDAQ NMS: PRKR), announced today that
Office Depot, Canada, a fully owned subsidiary of Office Depot
(NYSE:ODP) will add ParkerVision's SignalMAX™ wireless networking

SignalMAX line, based on the company's innovative Direct-2-Data™
(D2D)™ wireless RF technology, appeals to consumers and small

connectivity for home and small office networks. SignalMAX products
eliminate "dead-zones" commonly found with other manufacturers' gear.
ParkerVision also guarantees that SignalMAX notebook or desktop cards,
when used in conjunction with SignalMAX routers, will provide wireless
coverage of an entire home or small office building without the need for
repeaters, boosters, or special high-gain antennas, regardless of the
layout or construction of the building.

"As home and business networking continues to grow in the marketplace,
it is imperative that we offer our customers a product that will deliver
superior distance coverage and reliable connectivity throughout their
homes," said Scott Howard, Sr. Merchant, Technology Division, Office
Depot Team Canada. "Office Depot customers rely on us to provide only
the best. ParkerVision's products are among the best and we look forward
to working with their team to provide a new sense of security and
satisfaction to our customers".

"Our products are attracting attention from prominent retail chains like
Office Depot of Canada because their customers are seeking quality WiFi
equipment that can deliver superior distance, coverage, and reliable
internet connectivity throughout their homes," said Jeffrey L. Parker,
Chairman and CEO. "Our premium line of wireless networking products
guarantees seamless operation over longer distances, is more resilient
to interference, and uses less power consumption than those of any other
brand on the market today."
