SAN RAMON, Calif. -- U.S. Wireless Corporation (NASDAQ - USWC) and Bell
Atlantic Mobile signed an Evaluation Licensing Agreement, for the
testing and evaluation of U.S. Wireless's RadioCamera(TM) wireless
geographic location and tracking system in concert with the Bell
Atlantic Mobile's cellular telephone network. Bell Atlantic Mobile is
evaluating the RadioCamera system as a possible solution to the
Federal Communications Commission (FCC) mandate (CC Docket No. 94-102)
requiring wireless carriers to provide caller location-finding for
wireless emergency 911 service.

The testing and evaluation process is being structured into two
phases commencing in the 2nd quarter of 1998. The first phase is to
install U.S. Wireless's RadioCamera equipment at a limited number of
Bell Atlantic Mobile's cell sites in the Baltimore metropolitan area
to evaluate the performance of the locating system.

Upon successful completion of the initial phase, a second phase
would be undertaken to expand the deployment of the RadioCamera
throughout a larger geographic region, in order to further investigate
the potential uses of the location system.

U.S. Wireless is a developer and manufacturer of wireless
infrastructure for emergency 911 and other applications. RadioCamera
technology is designed to interface with wireless telecommunications
carriers' existing base stations, adding functionality and services
while providing the location of cellular callers.

Bell Atlantic Mobile is the largest wireless service provider on
the East Coast and the second largest in the United States. Based in
Bedminster, NJ, Bell Atlantic Mobile has 5.4 million customers and 7,000
employees in the Northeast, mid-Atlantic, Southeast, and - through a
separate subsidiary - the Southwest.
