This fairly short-lived company was founded by David Solt PE in 1987.  He and his brother John were missionaries in South America, and sold little transmitters to outlying areas. Sometimes, they would drop little transmitters via parachutes. David Solt owned his own airplane.

Their specialty was solid-state transmitters that presumably needed little attention. The Solts may or may not have built the 1 kW solid state unit, often called the Power Pebble, for Continental Electronics.

The line was sold to LPB at the end of 2000, but was shut down in 2002 when LPB fell apart. Sadly, when LPB went out of business all parts and documentation was lost.
