MOTOROLA RECEIVES SECOND JAPANESE DIGITAL ORDER FROM TU-KA CELLULAR TOKAI

 MOTOROLA RECEIVES SECOND JAPANESE DIGITAL
 ORDER FROM TU-KA CELLULAR TOKAI
 ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill., Aug. 18 -- Today Motorola's Cellular Infrastructure Group announced the awarding of a second major Japanese customer contract. TU-KA Cellular Tokai has contracted Motorola to supply the RF cell site equipment for the 1.5 GHz digital cellular network approximately one month after Tokai's sister company, TU-KA Cellular Tokyo, awarded Motorola a supply contract.
 "Motorola's leading-edge cellular technology is what sets us apart from our competitors," said Jack Scanlon, corporate vice president and general manager
of Motorola's Cellular Infrastructure Group. "Last month's selection by TU-KA Cellular Tokyo was just the first in the digitization process of Japan's phone system. Motorola looks forward to a long-term, mutually beneficial working relationship with our new Japanese operators.''
 Motorola will deploy cell sites in the regions of Tokai including: Aichi, Shizuoka, Gifu and Mie. Combined with the TU-KA Tokyo announcement of July, the contracts amount to about $180 million. Start of service is slated for 1994.
 "Motorola's highly successful cellular business in TU-KA Cellular strengthened our position as a leading system supplier in Japan and earned us a second Japanese digital cellular customer contract," said Pertti Johansson, vice president and director of Motorola's International Cellular Infrastructure Division. Previously, Motorola has installed nationwide analog systems, operated by DDI and IDO.
 The introduction of the new six sector cellular system allows for more efficient frequency use. Additionally, the combination of the six sector system for dense metropolitan areas and the omni/omni system for rural areas provides for a very cost effective total system design -- which permits inexpensive cellular operation in depopulated areas -- and allows TU-KA Cellular Tokai to operate the whole system economically.
 Motorola has previously been awarded digital cellular system contracts as a base station supplier for GSM (Global System for Mobile Communications) operators in European countries such as the United Kingdom, Norway, Sweden, Spain, Germany and Portugal.
 Motorola is the world's leading designer, manufacturer and supplier of cellular systems, infrastructure equipment and subscriber products. The company is also one of the leading providers of electronic equipment, systems components and services for worldwide markets.
