This event repeats every year forever
This month in 1985, Microbits Peripheral Products (MPP), was purchased by Supra Corporation. MPP was the maker of the popular MPP1000C and MPP1000E 300 baud modems that plugged into the Atari 8 bit's joystick port. Supra would rebrand the MPP1000E modem as the Supra 300AT modem (see image below). (source: September 1985 issue of the Portland Atari Club Newsletter, page 5.
