Bob... are you still there?

It seems we're having pretty good luck with the old resistance level (now support) at ~3... and the volume is increasing. Anything interesting from your end?

I am liking the looks of this company.
- hot sector
- low valuation
- seemingly good products
- responsive IR

Do they have any plans in leveraging their GM Military Contracts into something with GM's DirecTV subsidiary?

Why is the state of Wisconsin the biggest institutional shareholder?

I have tons of other questions, but will wait until after receiving and reading the IR materia. I'd love to hear any compelling reasons to buy this stock.

looking forward to joinging the thread,
A.M.

Welcome A.M.

KVH is a company in transition to the communications area. The military contracts will likely become gravy in the future, however, they are higher margin. I'm not sure what you refer to when you say GM Military Contracts.

I can direct you to their website at kvh.com for filings and conference call audio, or to Alice Andrews, Investor Relations at aandrews@kvh.com.

Please enlighten us (or is it just me? >G<) with your findings.

Regards,
Roy

thanks for the welcome ... I will do more research into who the managers are and also await the Investment Packet from the company.

As for the GM comment, this was from their 10K <<Major defense contractors, including United Defense LP and General Motors Corporation, also incorporate KVH navigation products in manufacturing military land vehicles.>>

So it seems they have "some" relationship with GM Corp. Maybe it can be leveraged into a non-military relationship?

We'll see,
A.M.

p.s. put in order for 200 shares at 2 15/16 today ... hasn't filled yet.

TACNAV LM is, I believe, suitable for use in SUVs for television reception, thought mostly in RVs currently. As time passes, it will likely become more widely used. I see Chevy has a Warner Bros. van now...

I am beginning to really like this company. Have been posting in the Yahoo! message board under Iddlez if anyone wants to read my comments.

I think it's turning it around. Could it pull a CMTL?

A.M.

Marathon Coach Selects TracVision LM; KVH Primary Supplier of In-Motion Satellite TV Systems

December 2, 1999 03:05 PM
MIDDLETOWN, R.I.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 2, 1999--Marathon Coach, Inc., the largest luxury bus conversion manufacturer in the world, has chosen KVH Industries, Inc. KVHI as its primary supplier of in-motion satellite television systems. TracVision(R) LM is available now on both Marathon's newly built 2000 models and on older models through the Marathon service centers. Beginning with their 2001 models, TracVision LM will become a standard feature on Marathon coaches.

"In the last 15 years, Marathon Coach has built more luxury coach conversions than any other company in the world," said Jim Dodez, KVH vice president of marketing. "Marathon is committed to producing the finest luxury vehicles in the world, and we consider its selection of our TracVision LM to be a real tribute to the quality and performance features KVH has designed into the land mobile system."

TracVision LM is a low-cost system that delivers direct broadcast satellite (DBS) programming to a range of recreational and other vehicles traveling the roads of North America. Drivers and passengers can receive hundreds of TV and music channels from DIRECTV(R) and the DISH(TM) Network, whether a vehicle is on the road or at rest. KVH also expects to add broadcast Internet access in the near future for real-time news, stock market data and weather information.

"Reliability and performance were key criteria for us in evaluating and selecting TracVision LM," said Robert A. Schoellhorn, Marathon chairman and CEO. "We pride ourselves on offering our customers the finest craftsmanship, materials and equipment available. More importantly, we provide the successful people who select one of our luxury coaches with all the comforts and conveniences of home that they enjoy and expect, which today includes full-time, mobile access to satellite broadcasting."

TracVision LM is an effective, reliable and affordable system that maintains satellite contact in mobile environments by sensing vehicle motion and automatically adjusting the antenna position. Prior to the development of TracVision LM, the most affordable and commonly used options for recreational vehicles and motor coaches in the United States were self-acquiring or crank-up units that could only receive satellite television when a vehicle was still. The proprietary sensor and software technologies KVH has incorporated into TracVision LM function automatically to acquire satellite contact, maintain pointing with 1 degree accuracy and actively track satellite signals at rates exceeding 30 degree per second. To meet the challenge of delivering cost-effective, stable, in-motion satellite reception for land vehicles, KVH built upon its experience in designing stabilized television and telephone systems for the marine industry, where the company is a world leader.

TracVision LM is the smallest in-motion land system available and retails for $2,995 (not including TVs, receivers or installation). The system weighs about 33 pounds with all components inside a flush-mount antenna dome that can be easily installed in approximately two hours on vehicles pre-wired with power and RF cables. KVH has established an extensive nationwide support network for servicing TracVision LM systems.

KVH is working with Marathon to train its salespeople and technicians on TracVision LM features and installation procedures. TracVision LM installation and service is available at a center at Marathon's West Coast headquarters in Coburg, Oregon, or on the East Coast at Marathon's center in San Antonio, Florida. Marathon has been designing and manufacturing custom luxury conversions on new commercial bus chassis and specialty trailers since 1983. To contact Marathon, call 800-234-9991 or visit its website at www.marathoncoach.com.

KVH Industries, Inc. manufactures and markets digital navigation systems and mobile satellite communication products for use in commercial, military, and marine applications. The company's headquarters are in Middletown, Rhode Island, and additional offices are located in Hoersholm, Denmark, Tinley Park, Illinois, and St. Petersburg, Florida.
