     CalAmp Corp. (the "Company") hereby requests a five day extension of
time in which to file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the third quarter
ended December 1, 2007 (the "Form 10-Q") to allow more time for the Company
and its independent auditors to complete their review of the third quarter
results, including the impairment charge discussed below.  The Company
expects to file the Form 10-Q at the end of five day extension period on
January 15, 2008.

----------------        -----------      -------------------
     (Name)             (Area Code)       (Telephone Number)

(2) Have all other periodic reports required under Section 13 or 15(d) of
    the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 or Section 30 of the Investment
    Company Act of 1940 during the preceding 12 months or for such shorter
    period that the registrant was required to file such report(s) been
    filed ? If answer is no, identify report(s). [X] Yes  [ ] No

(3) Is it anticipated that any significant change in results of operations
    from the corresponding period for the last fiscal year will be reflected
    by the earnings statements to be included in the subject report or
    portion thereof ?  [X] Yes [ ] No

If so, attach an explanation of the anticipated change, both narratively and
quantitatively, and, if appropriate, state the reasons why a reasonable
estimate of the results cannot be made.

      As a result of a significant decrease in recent business with a key
Direct Broadcast Satellite (DBS) customer due to a product performance issue
as previously disclosed, the Company anticipates reporting revenue for the
fiscal third quarter ended December 1, 2007 of $32.1 million, compared to
$59.1 million in the third quarter of last fiscal year.  Because of this
decrease in business with the key DBS customer, coupled with the recent
substantial decline in the Company's market capitalization, the Company
engaged an independent valuation specialist to conduct an interim goodwill
impairment analysis as of December 1, 2007 in accordance with the applicable
accounting rules.  This analysis indicated that the Company's goodwill has
been impaired, notwithstanding the fact that the Company entered into a
settlement agreement with this key DBS customer on December 14, 2007.  Based
on this analysis, the Company expects to record a non-cash impairment charge
in the range of $64 million to $68 million for the quarter ended December 1,
2007, which net of tax represents a charge in the range of $2.38 to $2.48 per
diluted share.  As a result of this impairment charge and the reduction of
business with the key DBS customer, the Company expects to report
substantially lower earnings in the quarter ended December 1, 2007 than the
corresponding period of last fiscal year.

The Company has caused this notification to be signed on its behalf by the
undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
