Ehrhorn today announced that the manufacturer of high power rf linear amplifiers, and CrossLink, Inc., of Boulder, CO, expect to complete a definitive agreement by the end of the year. Under the anticipated agreement, CrossLink will acquire all assets of, and rights to, the ALPHA amateur radio product line, and expects to resume production at the CrossLink facility early in 2001.</P>

    <FONT SIZE=3>I’m extremely pleased to be entrusting ALPHA to the capable hands of two enthusiastic, licensed amateurs, Gary Zarlengo and Gordon Hardman,&quot; said Ehrhorn. &quot;CrossLink’s experience in rf/wireless and digital communications and control technology is an excellent fit for ALPHA.</FONT>&quot;</P>

    Said CrossLink President/CEO Gary Zarlengo, WA0KLP, and Chief Technical Officer Gordon Hardman, KE3D, &quot;We are very pleased to have the opportunity to continue bringing the world-renowned ALPHA name and product line to the amateur radio community. We have long recognized ALPHA as the ultimate in rf power amplifiers for amateur radio, industrial and commercial applications. We look forward to providing the same top-quality products and services that have made ALPHA the industry leader for three decades, including full factory warranty and post-warranty service for existing ALPHA owners.&quot; </P>

    Because CrossLink is located only 25 miles from the present ALPHA/POWER facility, relocation is expected to be completed quickly. Also, a nucleus of ALPHA/POWER personnel, including Business Vice President Scott Ehrhorn and Customer Service Manager Glenn Pladsen, AE0Q, will join CrossLink. Ehrhorn will become ALPHA Product Line Manager, while Pladsen will continue to handle ALPHA customer service. According to Hardman, additional space and facilities available at CrossLink will allow ongoing ALPHA production at previous rates or greater.</P>

    Additional details, including the new ALPHA address as well as phone, FAX, and e-mail information, will be posted on the ALPHA website,, as they become available.</P>
