MOTOROLA TO PROVIDE COLORADO'S LARGEST 800 MHz TRUNKED PUBLIC SAFETY COMMUNICATIONS SYSTEM FOR WORLD YOUTH DAY EVENTS

 DENVER, Aug. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Motorola Communications and Electronics, Inc., will provide a state-of-the-art $4.5 million, twenty channel 800 MHz trunked radio communications system in order to handle the demands of the events associated with the visit of Pope John Paul II to Denver, Colo. The system will be Colorado's largest single public safety radio system.
 The announcement of Motorola's support was made by Father Edward Buelt of World Youth Day, Arapahoe County Sheriff Patrick Sullivan and Paul Lanci, vice president of Motorola's western division.
 The Motorola/World Youth Day trunked radio system is designed to ensure immediate access to multiple users. Motorola will provide World Youth Day officials with 800 radios which will be used to coordinate activities at more than 70 venues during Pope John Paul's visit to Denver. In addition, Motorola has provided the Arapahoe County Sheriffs' Department with 800 radios for the use of approximately 20 law enforcement and emergency service agencies with event responsibilities.
 "Without Motorola's enormous contribution, it would be difficult to organize activities," said Buelt. "Communication among the workers at our many venues will be critical."
 Motorola is one of the world's leading providers of wireless communications and has proven experience in events of this magnitude including the Winter and Summer Olympics and Nelson Mandela's visit to the United States in 1990.
 "Installing Colorado's largest public safety communications system for high intensity use for a short period of time is challenging," said Lanci. "Motorola has a proven track record in this arena and we are very proud to lend our expertise to World Youth Day, Sheriff Sullivan and the hundreds of people who will be relying on the system."
 Dispatchers working at the command center at Cherry Creek High School will physically have access to all law enforcement agencies involved in the Papal events. The system overlays the entire Denver metropolitan area and will provide coverage to Northglenn to the north, Chatfield Reservoir to the south, Denver International Airport to the east and Golden to the west.
 President Clinton is scheduled to meet with Pope John Paul II during the World Youth Day events. "With two world leaders in the metro area at once along with thousands of visitors, you need state-of-the-art communications capability," said Sheriff Sullivan who has responsibility for all law enforcement aspects of World Youth Day events at Cherry Creek Reservoir. "What the Motorola/World Youth Day system gives us is the critical tool of reliable communications for traffic, parking and crowd control, security intelligence, plus access to emergency services. This is a vital part of our law enforcement efforts."

Products include two-way radios, pagers, personal communications systems, cellular telephones and systems, semiconductors, defense and aerospace electronics, automotive and industrial electronics, computers, data communications and information processing and handling equipment.
