Perihelion Global Receives Formal FCC Broadcast Consent for WCMA Radio Station Power Increase

WILMINGTON, DE and SANTA ROSA BEACH, FL--(Marketwire - July 10, 2007) - Perihelion Global (PINKSHEETS: PHGI) today announced that the company has been granted a formal "License to Cover" from the United States Federal Communication Commission (FCC) for its WCMA-AM radio station to broadcast a non-directional signal at 50,000 watts (50kw), which is the maximum broadcast power allowed AM stations in North America.

Perihelion Global acquired the station earlier in the year from Beebe Communications, who had been granted FCC approval to re-engineer the station to increase its broadcast power from 5,000 watts to the FCC maximum of 50,000 watts non-directional. The formal FCC "License to Cover" consent will allow the station to cover Northern Florida, Southern Alabama and Southwestern Georgia.

Formal notice of the FCC consent was granted on July 2, 2007 and can be accessed on the FCC's website at:

The station is now fully operational, licensed and broadcasting at 50,000 watts. Of significant note to shareholders, WCMA-AM is one of the most powerful FCC licensed broadcast stations in North America. More importantly, WCMA's 50kw FCC broadcast license, broadcast tower, land, broadcast studio building, 50kw transmitter and broadcast equipment are owned outright and debt free. This represents a substantial, debt free asset of the company. In the near term, the company will begin to develop full-scale operations for the station, including launching cutting-edge content (including HD-Radio capability), as well as creating advertising and marketing programs to secure initial revenue streams.

John H. Beebe, Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President of Perihelion Global, stated, "We are pleased to announce we have been granted formal FCC consent to broadcast at the maximum power allowed for AM stations in North America. This represents a substantial revenue potential for our company." Adds Beebe, "Our expanded broadcast coverage area, and new technology in the broadcast industry will enable us to provide traditional radio broadcast combined with customized, on demand data and information services from one facility over sections of Florida, Alabama and Georgia."
