Wasn't the Foxmitter series and the Minimitter one of their products?
I had a Foxmitter III I built as a kid and a Minimitter I unfortunately
lost these on one of my various moves. They worked as advertised and a simple
substitution of one of the transistors in the Foxmitter got it to put out
300mW (illegal) instead of the 100mW stock. The other issue is I think it
took an oddball Burgess 21.5V? battery to run. I might be wrong on the battery
voltage but I recall it was a non-standard battery. Wished I could find the box
that has these gems in it but I think they were lost to posterity 10 years ago.
Nope. Foxmitter was marketed by CMR. I had one of these way back when. Must
be in the basement somewhere, but BTSOOM where it got to after all these
MITS was Forrest Mims company, and later went on to bring us the Altair

Another MITS employee was David Bunnell, who started PC Magazine, then after
Ziff-Davis bought it, went over and started PC World and MacWorld.
MITS co-founder Ed Roberts moved to Georgia a long time ago to be a doctor
and lives not too far from where we fly high power in the Perry/Lilly area.
Oh, and there were those other two ex-MITS employees... but they moved to
Seattle -- Redmond to be exact. No idea what happened to them after that.
