Penril DataComm Networks Inc.

This Gaithersburg communications equipment company said yesterday that it posted a loss in its first fiscal quarter because of a strong dollar, which postponed international sales; a price war in computer modems, and heavy spending on engineering and marketing a new line of equipment that connects computer networks, according to Henry D. Epstein, chairman of the company.

But based on the current rate of new orders, Mr. Epstein said, he expected the company to return to the black in the second fiscal quarter.
