existing and hereafter acquired or arising Collateral (including all rights
under the Contract) in order to secure prompt repayment of any and all

           5.          REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES

                       Borrower represents, warrants and covenants as follows:

                       5.1        Due Organization and Qualification.  Borrower
and each Subsidiary is a corporation duly existing and in good standing under
the laws of its state of incorporation and qualified and licensed to do
business in, and is in good standing in, any state in which the conduct of its
business or its ownership of property requires that it be so qualified.

                       5.2        Due Authorization; No Conflict.  The
execution, delivery, and performance of the Loan Documents are within Borrower's
powers, have been duly authorized, and are not in conflict with nor constitute
a breach of any provision contained in Borrower's Certificate of Incorporation
or Bylaws, nor will they constitute an event of default under any material
agreement to which Borrower is a party or by which Borrower is bound.  Borrower
is not in default under any agreement to which it is a party or by which it is
bound, which default could have a Material Adverse Effect.

                       5.3        No Prior Encumbrances.  Borrower has good and
indefeasible title to the Collateral, free and clear of Liens, except for
Permitted Liens.

                       5.4        Bona Fide Eligible Accounts.  The Eligible
Foreign Accounts are or will be bona fide existing obligations of Borrower's
account debtors, created by the sale or lease of goods, the licensing of
rights, or the rendition of services to account debtors in the ordinary course
of Borrower's business, and, except as may be provided in the Contract,
unconditionally owed to Borrower.  The property giving rise to such Eligible
Foreign Accounts has been delivered to the account debtor or to the account
debtor's agent for immediate shipment to and unconditional acceptance by the
account debtor.  Borrower has not received notice of actual or imminent
Insolvency Proceeding of any account debtor that is included in any Borrowing
Base Certificate as an Eligible Account.

                       5.5        Merchantable Inventory.  All Inventory is in
all material respects of good and marketable quality, free from all material
defects.

                       5.6        Name; Location of Chief Executive Office.
Borrower has not done business under any name other than that specified on the
signature page hereof.  The chief executive office of Borrower is located at
the address indicated in Section 10 hereof.

                       5.7        Litigation.  Except as set forth in the
Schedule hereto, there are no actions or proceedings pending by or against
Borrower or any Subsidiary before any court or administrative agency in which
an adverse decision is reasonably likely to have a Material Adverse Effect or a
material adverse effect on Borrower's interest or Bank's security interest in
the Collateral.  Borrower does not have knowledge of any such pending or
threatened actions or proceedings.

                       5.8        No Material Adverse Change in Financial
Statements.  All consolidated financial statements related to Borrower that
have been delivered by Borrower to Bank fairly present in all material respects
Borrower's consolidated financial condition as of the date thereof and
Borrower's consolidated results of operations for the period then ended.  There
has not been a material adverse change in the consolidated financial condition
of Borrower since the date of the most recent of such financial statements
submitted to Bank.

                       5.9        Solvency.  Borrower is solvent and able to
pay its debts (including trade debts) as they mature.

                       5.10       Regulatory Compliance.  Borrower and each
Subsidiary has met the minimum funding requirements of ERISA with respect to
any employee benefit plans subject to ERISA.  No event has occurred resulting
from Borrower's failure to comply with ERISA that is reasonably likely to





                                       11

   15
result in Borrower's incurring any liability that could have a Material Adverse
Effect.  Borrower is not an "investment company" or a company "controlled" by
an "investment company" within the meaning of the Investment Company Act of
1940.  Borrower is not engaged principally, or as one of the important
activities, in the business of extending credit for the purpose of purchasing
or carrying margin stock (within the meaning of Regulations G, T and U of the
Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System).  Borrower has complied with
all the provisions of the Federal Fair Labor Standards Act, and Borrower has
complied with all other statutes, laws, ordinances, and government rules and
regulations to which it is subject, non-compliance with which could have a
Material Adverse Effect or a material adverse effect on the Collateral or the
priority of Bank's Lien on the Collateral.

                       5.11       Environmental Condition.  None of Borrower's
or any Subsidiary's properties or assets has ever been used by Borrower or any
Subsidiary or, to the best of Borrower's knowledge, by previous owners or
operators, in the disposal of, or to produce, store, handle, treat, release, or
transport, any hazardous waste or hazardous substance other than in accordance
with applicable law; to the best of Borrower's knowledge, none of Borrower's
properties or assets has ever been designated or identified in any manner
pursuant to any environmental protection statute as a hazardous waste or
hazardous substance disposal site, or a candidate for closure pursuant to any
environmental protection statute; no lien arising under any environmental
protection statute has attached to any revenues or to any real or personal
property owned by Borrower or any Subsidiary; and neither Borrower nor any
Subsidiary has received a summons, citation, notice, or directive from the
Environmental Protection Agency or any other federal or state governmental
agency concerning any action or omission by Borrower or any Subsidiary relating
to the release or disposal of hazardous waste or hazardous substances; except
in each case where the failure of any of the foregoing to be true and correct
could not reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect or a
material adverse effect on the Collateral or the priority of the Bank's Lien on
the Collateral.

                       5.12       Taxes.  Borrower and each Subsidiary has
filed or caused to be filed all tax returns required to be filed, and has paid,
or has made adequate provision for the payment of, all taxes reflected therein.

                       5.13       Subsidiaries.  Borrower does not own any
stock, partnership interest or other equity securities of any Person, except as
set forth in the Schedule and except for Permitted Investments.

                       5.14       Government Consents.  Borrower and each
Subsidiary has obtained all consents, approvals and authorizations of, made all
declarations or filings with, and given all notices to, all governmental
authorities that are necessary for the continued operation of Borrower's
business as currently conducted; except in each case where the failure of any
of the foregoing to be true and correct could not reasonably be expected to
have a Material Adverse Effect.

                       5.15       Full Disclosure.  No representation, warranty
or other statement made by Borrower in any certificate or written statement
furnished to Bank contains any untrue statement of a material fact or omits to
state a material fact necessary in order to make the statements contained in
such certificates or statements not misleading.

                       5.16       CoastFed Loan Documents.  The representations
and warranties contained in the CoastFed Loan Documents are true and correct.

                       5.17       Ex-Im Guarantee.  The Ex-Im Guarantee remains 
in full force and effect.

an Event of Default by Borrower under this Agreement:

                       8.1        Payment Default.  If Borrower fails to pay

Expenses, or otherwise);

                       8.2        Covenant Default; Cross Default.  If Borrower

an Event of Default occurs under any of the CoastFed Loan Documents or the
Heller Loan Documents; or

                       8.3        Material Adverse Effect.  If there occurs an

or priority of Bank's security interest in the Collateral;

                       8.4        Attachment.  If all or any portion of
Borrower's assets is attached, seized, subjected to a writ or distress warrant,

by court order from continuing to conduct all or any part of its business
affairs, or if a judgment or other claim becomes a lien or encumbrance upon any
portion of Borrower's assets, or if a notice of lien, levy, or assessment is
filed of record with respect to any of Borrower's assets by the United States
Government, or any department, agency, or instrumentality thereof, or by any
state, county, municipal, or governmental agency, and the same is not paid
within ten (10) days after Borrower receives notice thereof, (provided that no
Advances will be required to be made during any cure period permitted under
this section);

                       8.5        Insolvency.  If Borrower becomes insolvent,
or if an Insolvency Proceeding is commenced by Borrower, or if an Insolvency
Proceeding is commenced against Borrower and is not





                                       17

   21

prior to the dismissal of such Insolvency Proceeding);

                       8.6        Other Agreements.  If there is a default in

resulting in a right by such third party or parties, whether or not exercised,
to accelerate the maturity of any Indebtedness in an amount in excess of Three
Hundred Thousand Dollars ($300,000), or which default could have a Material
Adverse Effect;

                       8.7        Judgments.  If a judgment or judgments for
the payment of money in an amount, individually or in the aggregate, the

ceases for any reason to be in full force and effect, or if the Ex-Im Bank
declares the Ex-Im Guarantee void or revokes or purports to revoke its
obligations under the Ex-Im Guarantee.

           9.          BANK'S RIGHTS AND REMEDIES

                       9.1        Rights and Remedies.  Upon the occurrence and
continuation of an Event of Default, Bank may, at its election, upon notice
(except for an Event of Default specified under section 8.5, as to which no
notice shall be required), do any one or more of the following:

                                  (a)        Declare all Obligations, whether
evidenced by this Agreement, by any of the other Loan Documents, or otherwise,
immediately due and payable;

                                  (b)        Cease advancing money or extending
credit to or for the benefit of Borrower under this Agreement or under any
other agreement between Borrower and Bank;

                                  (c)        Settle or adjust disputes and
claims directly with account debtors for amounts, upon terms and in whatever
order that Bank reasonably considers advisable;

                                  (d)        Make such payments and do such
acts as Bank considers necessary or reasonable to protect its security interest
in the Collateral.  Borrower agrees to assemble the Collateral if Bank so
requires, and to make the Collateral available to Bank as Bank may designate.
Borrower authorizes Bank to enter the premises where the Collateral is located,
to take and maintain possession of the Collateral, or any part of it, and to
pay, purchase, contest, or compromise any encumbrance, charge, or lien which in
Bank's determination appears to be prior or superior to its security interest
and to pay all expenses incurred in connection therewith.  With respect to any
of Borrower's owned premises, Borrower hereby grants Bank a license to enter
into possession of such premises and to occupy the same, without charge, for up
to one hundred twenty (120) days in order to exercise any of Bank's rights or
remedies provided herein, at law, in equity, or otherwise;

                                  (e)        Set off and apply to the
Obligations any and all (i) balances and deposits of Borrower held by Bank, or
(ii) indebtedness at anytime owing to or for the credit or the account of
Borrower held by Bank;

   22
                                  (f)        Ship, reclaim, recover, store,
finish, maintain, repair, prepare for sale, advertise for sale, and sell (in
the manner provided for herein) the Collateral.  Bank is hereby granted a
license or other right, solely pursuant to the provisions of this section 9.1,
to use, without charge, Borrower's labels, patents, copyrights, rights of use
of any name, trade secrets, trade names, trademarks, service marks, and
advertising matter, or any property of a similar nature, as it pertains to the
Collateral, in completing production of, advertising for sale, and selling any
Collateral and, in connection with Bank's exercise of its rights under this
section 9.1, Borrower's rights under all licenses and all franchise agreements
shall inure to Bank's benefit;

                                  (g)        Sell the Collateral at either a
public or private sale, or both, by way of one or more contracts or
transactions, for cash or on terms, in such manner and at such places
(including Borrower's premises) as Bank determines is commercially reasonable;

                                  (h)        Bank may credit bid and purchase 
at any public sale; and

                                  (i)        Any deficiency that exists after
disposition of the Collateral as provided above will be paid immediately by
Borrower.

                       9.2        Ex-Im Direction.  Upon the occurrence of an
Event of Default, Ex-Im Bank shall have a right to: (i) direct Bank to exercise
the remedies specified in section 9.1 and (ii) request that Bank accelerate the
maturity of any other loans to Borrower as to which Bank has a right to
accelerate.

                       9.3        Ex-Im Notification.  Bank shall have a right
immediately to notify Ex-Im Bank in writing if it has knowledge of the
occurrence of any of the following events: (1) any failure to pay any amount
due under this Agreement or the Note; (2) the Borrowing Base is less than the
sum of outstanding Advances hereunder (after giving effect to any prepayments);
(3) any failure to pay when due any amount payable to Bank by the Borrower
under any loan(s) extended by Bank to Borrower; (4) the filing of an action for
debtor's relief by, against, or on behalf of Borrower, or (5) any threatened or
pending material litigation against Borrower, or any material dispute involving
Borrower.

           In the event that it sends such a notification to Ex-Im Bank, Bank
shall have a right thereafter to send Ex-Im Bank a written report on the status
of the events covered by said notification on each Business Day which occurs
every thirty (30) calendar days after the date of said notification, until such
time as Bank files a claim with Ex-Im Bank or said default or other events have
been cured.

           No Advances shall be made by Bank following said notification to
Ex-Im Bank, unless Ex-Im Bank gives its written approval thereto.

           If directed to do so by Ex-Im Bank, Bank shall have a right promptly
to exercise any rights it may have against Borrower to demand the immediate
repayment of all amounts outstanding under the Loan Documents.

                       9.4        Accounts Collection.  At any time from the
date of this Agreement, Bank may notify any Person owing funds to Borrower in
connection with the Contract of Bank's security interest in such funds.
Borrower shall collect all amounts owing to Borrower for Bank, receive in trust
all payments as Bank's trustee, and immediately deliver such payments to Bank
in their original form as received from the account debtor, with proper
endorsements for deposit.

                       9.5        Bank Expenses.  If Borrower fails to pay any
amounts or furnish any required proof of payment due to third persons or
entities, as required under the terms of this Agreement, then Bank may do any
or all of the following: (a) make payment of the same or any part thereof, (b)
set up such reserves under the Revolving Facility as Bank deems necessary to
protect Bank from the exposure created by such failure; or (c) obtain and
maintain insurance policies of the type discussed in





                                       19

   23
Section 6.6 of this Agreement, and take any action with respect to such
policies as Bank deems prudent.  Any amounts so paid or deposited by Bank shall
constitute Bank Expenses, shall be immediately due and payable, and shall bear
interest at the then applicable rate hereinabove provided, and shall be secured
by the Collateral.  Any payments made by Bank shall not constitute an agreement
by Bank to make similar payments in the future or a waiver by Bank of any Event
of Default under this Agreement.

                       9.6        Bank's Liability for Collateral.  So long as
Bank complies with reasonable banking practices, Bank shall not in any way or
manner be liable or responsible for: (a) the safekeeping of the Collateral; (b)
any loss or damage thereto occurring or arising in any manner or fashion from
any cause; (c) any diminution in the value thereof; or (d) any act or default
of any carrier, warehouseman, bailee, forwarding agency, or other person
whomsoever.  All risk of loss, damage or destruction of the Collateral shall be
borne by Borrower.

                       9.7        Remedies Cumulative.  Bank's rights and
remedies under this Agreement, the Loan Documents, and all other agreements
shall be cumulative.  Bank shall have all other rights and remedies not
inconsistent herewith as provided under the Code, by law, or in equity.  No
exercise by Bank of one right or remedy shall be deemed an election, and no
waiver by Bank of any Event of Default on Borrower's part shall be deemed a
continuing waiver.  No delay by Bank shall constitute a waiver, election, or
acquiescence by it.  No waiver by Bank shall be effective unless in writing.

                       9.8        Demand; Protest; Application.  Borrower
waives demand, protest, notice of protest, notice of default or dishonor,
notice of payment and nonpayment, notice of any default, nonpayment at
maturity, release, compromise, settlement, extension, or renewal of accounts,
documents, instruments, chattel paper, and guarantees at any time held by Bank
on which Borrower may in any way be liable.  Borrower waives any right to
direct the application of any amount received by Bank.

           10.         NOTICES

                       Unless otherwise provided in this Agreement, all notices

                       12.1       Successors and Assigns.  This Agreement shall
bind and inure to the benefit of the respective successors and permitted
assigns of each of the parties; provided, however, that neither this Agreement
nor any rights hereunder may be assigned by Borrower without Bank's prior
written consent, which consent may be granted or withheld in Bank's sole
discretion.  Bank shall have the right without the consent of or notice to
Borrower to sell, transfer, negotiate, or grant participations in all or any
part of, or any interest in, Bank's obligations, rights and benefits hereunder.

                       12.2       Indemnification.  Borrower shall defend,

negligence or willful misconduct.

                       12.3       Time of Essence.  Time is of the essence for

                       12.4       Severability of Provisions; Headings.  Each
provision of this Agreement shall be severable from every other provision of

                       12.5       Amendments in Writing.  This Agreement cannot

Bank, no material amendment of or deviation from the terms of this Agreement or

under the Ex-Im Guarantee including without limitation the rescheduling of any
payment terms provided for in this Agreement.  All prior agreements,
understandings, representations, warranties, and negotiations between the
parties hereto with respect to the subject matter of this Agreement, if any,
are merged into this Agreement.

                       12.6       Counterparts.  This Agreement may be executed

warranties made in this Agreement shall continue in full force and effect so
long as any Obligations remain outstanding.  The obligations of Borrower to
indemnify Bank with respect to the expenses, damages, losses, costs and
liabilities described in Section 10.3 shall survive until all applicable
statute of limitations periods with respect to actions that may be brought
against Bank have run.

                       12.8       Ex-Im Guarantee.  The terms of the Ex-Im
Guarantee are incorporated into the terms of this Agreement.  Borrower
acknowledges and accepts that the Ex-Im Guarantee is effective for a 12-month
period only and shall expire not later than the Availability Date.  Nothing in 
the Ex-Im Guarantee shall have the effect of obligating, whether expressly or 
by implication, or otherwise give rise to any real or implied liability on the
part of Ex-Im Bank to continue to extend the Ex-Im Guarantee at the end of such
12-month period or to undertake any future guarantee related to Borrower with
respect to the Contract.

           IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties hereto have caused this Agreement to
be executed as of the date first above written.

           FOR VALUE RECEIVED, the undersigned, Digital Microwave Corporation
(the "Borrower"), promises to pay to the order of Bank of the West ("Bank"), at
such place as the holder hereof may designate, in lawful money of the United
States of America, the aggregate unpaid principal amount of all advances
("Advances") made by Bank to Borrower under the terms of this Note, up to a
maximum principal amount of Fifteen Million Dollars ($15,000,000).  Borrower
shall also pay interest on the aggregate unpaid principal amount of such
Advances at the rates and in accordance with the terms of the Loan and Security
Agreement between Borrower and Bank of even date herewith, as amended from time
to time (the "Loan Agreement") on the last Business Day of each month after an
Advance has been made.  The entire principal amount and all accrued interest
shall be due and payable on August 28, 1996, or on such earlier date, as
provided for in the Loan Agreement.

           Borrower irrevocably waives the right to direct the application of
any and all payments at any time hereafter received by Bank from or on behalf
of Borrower, and Borrower irrevocably agrees that Bank shall have the
continuing exclusive right to apply any and all such payments against the then
due and owing obligations of Borrower as Bank may deem advisable.  In the
absence of a specific determination by Bank with respect thereto, all payments
shall be applied in the following order: (a) then due and payable fees and
expenses; (b) then due and payable interest payments and mandatory prepayments;
and (c) then due and payable principal payments and optional prepayments.

           Bank is hereby authorized by Borrower to endorse on Bank's books and
records each Advance made by Bank under this Note and the amount of each
payment or prepayment of principal of each such Advance received by Bank; it
being understood, however, that failure to make any such endorsement (or any
errors in notation) shall not affect the obligations of Borrower with respect
to Advances made hereunder, and payments of principal by Borrower shall be
credited to Borrower notwithstanding the failure to make a notation (or any
errors in notation) thereof on such books and records.

           Borrower promises to pay Bank all reasonable costs and reasonable
expenses of collection of this Note and to pay all reasonable attorneys' fees
incurred in such collection or in any suit or action to collect this Note or in
any appeal thereof.  Borrower waives presentment, demand, protest, notice of
protest, notice of dishonor, notice of nonpayment, and any and all other
notices and demands in connection with the delivery, acceptance, performance,
default or enforcement of this Note, as well as any applicable statute of
limitations.  No delay by Bank in exercising any power or right hereunder shall
operate as a waiver of any power or right.  Time is of the essence as to all
obligations hereunder.

           This Note is issued pursuant to the Loan Agreement, which shall
govern the rights and obligations of Borrower with respect to all obligations
hereunder.

           This Note shall be deemed to be made under, and shall be construed
in accordance with and governed by, the laws of the State of California,
excluding conflicts of laws principles.
