The existence of stable spiral wave solutions in a spatially discrete λ - ω system is proven. The waves are shown to exist only if the coupling parameter d is sufficiently small. There is a critical value dc such that if d > dc, the spiral wave solution ceases to exists. This is in agreement with the behavior of such waves in spatially continuous λ - ω systems on finite domains.
