Recently I have discussed the future of the ASC1 DiSEqC positioner controller with our resellers and have had to make the difficult decision to end production. After a very successful run of over 5 years and over 3K units sold, I have decided to not manufacture another batch. The current stock will likely be exhausted in July, 2019. We will continue to provide the same high level of technical support and bench service for the ASC1 and have ample components and resources to continue to provide service for many years. This decision did not come easily. Due to a significant increases in both manufacturing and shipping costs during the past few years and the continuance of the 25% tariff that we have been paying on electronic imports for the past 8 months, it no longer makes business sense to distribute the ASC1. Shopped the ASC1 build to many North American shops and without exception, the manufacturing cost bids far exceeded the estimated cost of importing at current cost and tariff. Was hoping that the 25% tariff would be only a temporary tax that would end before we ran low on stock, but the tariff war has now escalated and it has been suggested that the tariff on electronics will likely increase. With the minimum production quantity exceeding over a year of sales, it is far too risky to manufacture. With the ASC1 cost already at the high end for most hobbyists, raising the price to offset these increases isn't a realistic option. Thank you for your support of of the ASC1. I thoroughly enjoyed and have been blessed and honored with the opportunity to provide a quality DiSEqC positioner that filled a niche in our hobby!
