Oxnard, California, July 14, 2004 - California Amplifier, Inc. (Nasdaq:
CAMP) announced today that its board of directors has amended its 2004
Stock Incentive Plan to reduce the number of shares of Common Stock subject
to the Plan from 3,200,000 shares to 3,000,000 shares.  Although the
Company believed that the number of shares originally subject to the Plan
was in compliance with Institutional Shareholder Services guidelines for
favorable recommendations on such plans, it was informed late last week by
ISS that the proposed number of shares exceeded the guidelines.
Consequently, the Company decided to seek stockholder approval of the
smaller Plan. The 2004 Stock Incentive Plan will be presented for
stockholder approval at the Company's Annual Meeting of Stockholders to be
held on Friday, July 30, 2004.  The Company expects that ISS will recommend
voting in favor of the Plan.  The weighted average remaining life for the
3,082,033 options that the Company currently has outstanding under its
existing stock option plans is 7.05 years, and the weighted average
exercise price of these outstanding options is $10.93.

The Company has filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the
"SEC") a definitive proxy statement containing information about the
proposals to be considered at the Annual Meeting which stockholders are
urged to read because it contains important information.  Stockholders may
obtain, free of charge, a copy of the definitive proxy statement and other
documents filed by the Company with the SEC at the SEC's website,
www.sec.gov.  In addition, documents filed with the SEC by the Company will
be available free of charge from the Company.

The Company and its board of directors may be soliciting proxies from
stockholders of the Company in favor of the proposals to be considered at
the Annual Meeting.  Information concerning the participants in the proxy
solicitation is set forth in the definitive proxy statement as filed with
the SEC.
