Re: Gainesville TX Future Siren System? Mmmm.... no EDIT: IT's BACK ONLINE!

Both San Angelo and Abilene have been hit by tornadoes in the last couple weeks. We will see if anything changes. Gainesville made a really stupid decision to abandon their system, but glad to see it’s back in service. Their testing is always finicky...they cancel if a mosquito farts.

Re: New Mexico Sirens

Unless you're on the eastern side of New Mexico, there aren't many sirens in the state I'm aware of. Roswell is the largest city with a system. I assume you'll come in on IH-40. Tucumcari and Santa Rosa might have sirens, but I don't know. There is a Model 2 near Jemez Springs at the VFD. That'd be ...

Re: Phase Convertor

You're pretty much gonna have to have a dedicated service from the utility for an ACA siren. They pull so much current that you'd pop all breakers in your house (assuming this is where you're intending to to this). Those capacitor start motors are current hungry and one cannot simply use standard ho...

Re: Spokane's Big Joe locations

I guess they've been removed? If they are still there I wish I would've known when I was up there a couple years ago.

Re: VT Yankee's final siren test

Don't expect to get a reply from Entergy. I sent them an inquisitive email after learning the fate of Fitzpatrick and Pilgrim. I never got a response. I believe Entergy will shut down all nuclear plants in the Northeast.
