Hello all.

I have two Am-Com ASAC controllers that I'm looking for service literature on.  Does anyone know if the designer of this device is still around or contactable in anyway?  There still seems to be some hams still using this device.  Does anyone have contact information? Is there a chance the original designer since he no longer seems interested in producing these units would release the service information into the public domain? 

Thanks

Yes, he's still around and kicking. What specially are you inquiring about? I have limited information, and a few parts laying around. If necessary, I can ask the good doctor for some help. However, if you're looking for the CPU chip and/or programming, they're nonobtainium!

Thanks for the reply. What I'm looking for is information on recalibrating a units that is going to be put back in the service after a long rest. There are multiple test points, two variable trim caps, and one sealed trim pot.  What is the procedure to touch up the alignment of the unit to make sure it operates properly before I go to all the trouble of reinstalling it just to find out it no longer functions properly. Angry

p.s.  It is a very nice unit and I purchased mine many years ago @ the Dayton Hamvention from the folks at the Am-Com booth.  I also own an original Clear-speech speaker.  Works very well indeed!  Am-Comu made some good stuff.  Almost forgot my micro controller is version 2.1 on the one I have in front of me.

Someplace, I have a digital manual for it. If I find it, I'll forward it to you. In any case, I'd just try it first.
