  401(k) Plans
 
     Effective January 1, 1996, PM&C adopted the Pegasus Communications Savings
Plan (the "US 401(k) Plan") for eligible employees of PM&C and its domestic
subsidiaries. Substantially all Company employees who, as of the enrollment date
under the 401(k) Plans, have completed at least one year of service with the
Company are eligible to participate in one of the 401(k) Plans. Participants may
make salary deferral contributions of 2% to 6% of their salary to the 401(k)
Plans. The expense for this plan amounted to $19,520, $14,446 and $7,367 in 1996
and 1997 and for the six months ended June 30, 1998, respectively.
 
     All employee contributions to the 401(k) Plans are fully vested at all
times and all Company contributions, if any, vest 34% after two years of service
with the Company (including years before the 401(k) Plans were established), 67%
after three years of service and 100% after four years of service. A participant
also becomes fully vested in Company contributions to the 401(k) Plans upon
attaining age 65 or upon his or her death or disability.
