KVH Offers High-tech Tailgating Equipment


KVH TracVision® Satellite Television Integral Tailgating Component According to Joe Cahn, Commissioner of Tailgating

MIDDLETOWN, RI – January 6, 2004 – It’s late in the season and every game counts. Contenders vs. spoilers, homefield advantage vs. wildcard. And you’re there. Armed with a barbecue, spatula, and a full pound of beef in each patty, you are a tailgater. But not just any tailgater, for you are on the cutting edge of parking lot prowess using state-of-the-art technology that makes the novice in the next RV cringe with jealousy. Your sleek KVH TracVision® Satellite Television System by KVH Industries (Nasdaq: KVHI) of Middletown, RI, allows you to receive more than 300+ channels of uninterrupted, crystal-clear digital entertainment and 50+ channels of commercial-free music with CD-quality sound, so you know every score of every game. Life is good.

Whether you’re parked outside the stadium or cruising down the highway, KVH offers a full line of versatile and reliable satellite TV antenna systems. Housed in stylish impact-resistant domes for the roof of your RV, truck, or motorcoach, KVH’s fully stabilized satellite TV antennas are compatible with high-powered satellite TV services throughout North America and Europe, as well as many others worldwide.

And for your SUV or minivan, KVH Industries’ high-performance, groundbreaking TracVision A5 satellite television antenna, provides uninterrupted reception of satellite TV signals on open roads and stadium parking lots throughout the continental U.S. The TracVision A5 includes a deluxe, automotive satellite receiver that mounts easily under a seat or in the trunk of your car and the low-profile antenna easily integrates with any in-vehicle video system. Standing 5" high, the sleek housing mounts securely to your roof rack and its rugged design is built to withstand the rigors of the road, so you can enjoy SportsCenter and hundreds of other shows and channels anywhere you travel or tailgate, anytime.

The ubiquitous Commissioner of Tailgating, Joe Cahn, who will travel about 35,000 miles to more than 45 stadiums and NASCAR tracks this year, considers TracVision a vital component in the life of any true tailgating enthusiast. “The wonderful thing about the satellite TV is there isn’t anyplace it doesn’t work. No matter whether I’m sitting on the ocean in Maine, or on the Hudson River for an Army game, or sitting on the dock of the bay in San Francisco parked almost to Fisherman’s Wharf, or up in Green Bay – the frozen tundra – I can always depend on the satellite.”

Just think. Because of BCS strength of schedule ratings, the Hawaii-Boise State game had major bowl implications. You were on it. You were the first to know that the Tigers, not the Trojans, were going to play in New Orleans for the National Championship. You also wanted to know who was winning the World Series of Poker on ESPN3. Okay, so there is no ESPN3, but with your KVH TracVision you’d be able to receive it if there was. And though you’d never admit it, you’re a sucker for figure skating now airing on FoxSports.

Plus, DVB®-compatible TracVision systems offer the option to hook up to KVH’s TracNet™ 2.0 Mobile High-speed Internet System so you can get online virtually anywhere and track your route to the Big Easy for the Sugarbowl. Then it’s only another 6 or 7 hours to Houston for the Super Bowl. For the complete line of KVH products, visit For tailgating information, helpful hints, and stories visit,
