Re: Uniquely Mounted Sirens Thread

If we're talking about mounts with maintenance in mind, This Thunderbolt in Schenectady, NY has a whole gigantic platform just for working on it! I'm guessing either Chrysler was here before they just slapped a Thunderbolt into its place, or this whole tower was for the Thunderbolt. It's also off ce...

Re: The FS 508 siren map

Cook County, Georgia: Most of these units haven't been installed yet, but it is safe to say they will be soon. They're replacing a system of 2 inactive Loudoun ES-2000's. 31.13872, -83.44455 (installed) 31.15502, -83.41194 (installed) 31.13115, -83.38178 (installed) 31.13323, -83.33029 (installed) ...

Re: What siren can be heard the furthest away?

Sorry to be impolite, but what exactly are you asking? If you're wondering what the loudest siren is after the P-50, Eclipse DDS answered that one above. If you're wondering about how not-as-loud sirens (like how the Thunderbolt isn't as loud as the P-50) can be heard from farther away than the P-50...

Re: Quick 3T22 and Thunderbolt 1003 Question

I think most of Federal Signal's sirens were named before the other signals had been invented. At the time of it's release, Either they did think about the pulse signal and decided to not count it as a signal or it wasn't even thought about it before. The same can also be said for a 3T22. If it’s ca...

Re: Question about ACA Hurricane motor

Looking at pictures of the chopper assembly, they use Doerr Electric 1HP induction motors. They apparently bought them the way they were without having them custom built. To be honest, I had to search some of this up on the Wiki (I'm starting to feel like I don't actually know that much about sirens...

You are correct, that is an E.A Laboratories Sireane Jr. From my research, some came with 12 ports and some had 8.
Awesome! The wiki only says that they only come in 8 ports. Does that help with the year it was produced in?

What type of siren is this?

I finally had my dream of getting a siren come true! The only thing that I need help with is the brand and model of the siren. I’m thinking that it might be a E.A Laboratories Sireane Jr, but I don’t exactly know for sure because the tag is missing, or it didn’t even have one at all, as there aren't...

Re: New Big bertha picture found?

Has been known about. I thought it was new when I found it myself, but was quickly informed that it wasn't. It has? I've seen nothing about it on the forums or ever seen it show up when I google it. If it's known, why don't people talk about that it was in Lansing, MI when it wasn't even made there...

New Big bertha picture found?

I posted this not too long ago on other topics, but I didn't get many replies for them. As I was looking around on the CADL photo archive for civil defense photos, I found this picture of what I think is Big Bertha at the capital being tested and worked on. I do know that Lansing originally had a Ch...

Re: Chino 2T22

Is the siren actually in the museum as an exhibit, or is it mounted outside somewhere? There's a historic WW2 museum hangar that has a working coded Fedelcode Model 5 that's mounted atop a building and controlled by the museum. Wendover Army Airfield is the place. It's inside the museum. There's a ...
