Devens, MA - Sep 15, 2006 - After 32 years with the company, Lynn Cheney has retired as the president of Comrex. John Cheney founded the company in 1961. Lynn, then Lynn Distler, started working for the company in 1974. She and John married several years later.

The first Comrex product was a wireless mic system that operated in the 450MHz band. These systems were used by theaters and broadcasters for many years. Later, Comrex moved into telephony, and since then the company's technology has evolved beyond phone couplers and single-line frequency extenders for POTS lines, to a range of POTS, ISDN and IP codecs. Comrex also manufacturers a line of telephone hybrids and a complete on-air telephone system.

Lynn Cheney was joined by several broadcast manufacturers and dealers as well as Radio magazine on her last day in the office. During the reception, several calls were taken via Comrex products to extend well wishes to Cheney in her retirement. Cheney plans to travel with her family and enjoy the outdoors, including kayaking.
