MELVILLE, N.Y., Nov. 30, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Comtech Telecommunications Corp. (Nasdaq:CMTL) announced today that its Tempe, Arizona-based subsidiary, Comtech EF Data Corp., received a $1.1 million order for satellite transceivers and amplifiers from a telecommunications provider in Latin America. The equipment will support a data network expansion to enable the delivery of service to additional subscribers.

The order includes an array of RF products including CSAT C-Band Transceivers, LPOD Block Up Converters and CLNA Low-Noise Amplifiers.
