Comtech Telecommunications Corp.
Receives $1.0 Million Order for Satellite Equipment

MELVILLE, N.Y., Oct 14, 2003 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Comtech Telecommunications Corp. (Nasdaq: CMTL) announced today that its Tempe, Arizona-based subsidiary, Comtech EF Data Corp., has received a $1.0 million follow-on order from a major cellular operator in Southeast Asia. The present project consists of 18 sites with more sites planned in the coming months.

The order includes Comtech EF Data's signature CDM-600 modems with Turbo Product Code (TPC) forward error correction capable of operating at up to 20 Mbps data rates, along with redundant C-Band CSAT 50 Watt Transceivers.
