     On September  12, 2006,  Blonder  Tongue  Investment  Company  ("BTIC"),  a
wholly-owned  subsidiary of Blonder Tongue  Laboratories,  Inc. (the "Company"),
entered into a Patent Purchase  Agreement  ("Purchase  Agreement") with Moonbeam
L.L.C. ("Moonbeam").  Pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, upon closing, Moonbeam
will pay to BTIC a total of Two Million  Dollars  ($2,000,000)  as the  purchase
price for certain patent applications,  provisional patent applications, patents
and  related  foreign  patents  and  applications  (collectively,   the  "Patent
Rights").  The Patent Rights deal primarily with  Interdiction  product lines in
the Addressable Subscriber category of equipment.

     Under the terms of the Purchase  Agreement,  upon closing and  concurrently
with the sale of the Patent Rights to Moonbeam,  Blonder Tongue, its affiliates,
and  its  authorized  agents  will be  granted  a  royalty-free,  non-exclusive,
non-sublicenseable,  worldwide  right and  license to use the  Patent  Rights to
make, use,  distribute,  lease, sell, import,  export,  develop,  dispose of and
exploit any products covered by the Patent Rights. Further,  Blonder Tongue will
be  permitted  to  transfer  its  license  rights  to  a  purchaser  of  all  or
substantially  all of the operating  assets of certain  Blonder Tongue  business
lines.  Still  further,  Blonder  Tongue  (and a  successor)  will be  granted a
non-exclusive  right to use the inventions and  discoveries  described in any of
the  patents  for the  purpose  of  further  research  and  development  of such
inventions and discoveries in connection with Blonder Tongue's business.

     The  Purchase  Agreement  is  subject to certain  customary  conditions  to
closing,  including  satisfactory  completion of  documentation.  The closing is
anticipated  to occur  within  thirty days  following  execution of the Purchase

     The  foregoing  description  of the Purchase  Agreement is qualified in its
entirety by  reference  to the  complete  terms and  conditions  of the Purchase
Agreement, which is filed as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
