Here is Roanoke's 2001.
It is a 2001-SRN (the late-model 2001 Siren)
It is also very easy to find
There's no stickers on this siren except for the usual "protect your ears" verbage
Here is what I dislike about this install
No, it isn't the antenna, which is a nice fiberglass VHF stick
It's these two-piece aluminum poles
I mean, c'mon guys, this isn't a nice light streetlight here
This is a siren that needs to stand up to high winds to do its job
Here's your typical set of Federal Controls.
I'll get to the charger in a minute
My conveyance is in the corner
Both doors are open, as my partner-in-hunting Sirenkid was with me today
The sky is a little threatening, no?
We are right under a little summer popcorn storm and it was already starting to rain as I snapped this picture.
This is one of the few Modulators in Denton County
Note the driver Access Panels on the side of the pods
(and the lack of one on the bottom pod)
Again, what is with this cheesy two-piece pole?
The Mod is even more top-heavy than the 2001 is, and I worry about this one falling down someday
The boxes again are typical Federal
Another view of the boxes
This is the first close look I got at a Modulator, and I must admit that
these are nice-looking sirens
The Mod is in a park south of downtown Roanoke
This was Roanoke's original siren, used to call the fire department (which
It is still wired, though with the Mod being a few blocks away I doubt it is still active
This guy is still in good shape but could use a coat of paint
I suspect that one of us locals on the airraidsirens.com forum will get ahold of it someday
From another angle
One can see the rotors real clearly, though they are shadowed badly in the picture.
