That 10V is mounted like the one behind the Town Hall in my hometown of Middleburg, VA!

Here's a picture I got when I visited the American Signal factory in Milwaukee, WI after the Mobil Directo failed on me in June, 2017. Well, this definitely made up for it.

Here’s a photo of my 2 that I consider to be epic yet pleasing to look at as well. Hope you all enjoy it!

After today's successful test, I went on an elongated picture trip along the Susquehanna River. Here are some of my favorites:
1. FS SD-10 on 3rd alley at a park in Steelton. Inactive and formerly used as a civil defense siren.
2. FS Model 5 at Steelton FD. Inactive, may have once been used as a CD siren.
3. ASC T-128 at Highspire PD, part of the TMI system. (I was standing on top of a slide at a playground to achieve the 2nd shot)
4. FS Model 5T at PA 230 and Hanover Street in Highspire. Inactive and formerly used as a CD siren.
5. FS STL-10 (the siren I recorded) at Highspire VFD
6. FS Model 5T and PA 230 and South Eisenhower Boulevard in Highspire. Inactive and formerly used as a CD siren.

Here’s a few of mine from Lakewood, Ohio that I took over Presidents‘ Day weekend. This is the broken EOWS-612 located at Cove Park. If you didn’t already know, pretty much all their 612’s are broken. The Modulator 6024 has blown drivers so it will also be replaced. More history on this siren is below.

Federal Signal ‘SiraTone’ EOWS-612
Installed: 1986 (Originally installed behind Garfield High School, moved to Cove Park in 2007 after an expansion at the school); from 1986 to their ‘refurbishing’ in 1998, they used the original SiraTone controllers with the dual-tone alert signal as well as the classic SiraTone 16-note Westminster Chime.
Upgraded in 1998 to the MCP (Modulator Controller Plus) controller with the single-tone alert and Westminster Chime. The Modulator at Lakewood Park was added for additional coverage later between 1995 and 2002, as it came original with the MCP controller. The system is set to be replaced with a new system (bids have yet to be taken) sometime this year with 4 brand new sirens (likely installed at the existing locations) with Lakewood allotting approximately $130,000 for the replacement (according to city documents).

I didn't think I was going to have to say this to someone else, but this thread is for siren PICTURES; physical PICTURES that you took in person, not street view shots. While this is a cool find, it doesn't belong in this thread. Perhaps you could make a new thread related to it, such as "sirens being serviced on street view" or something like that.

Thanks, just please don't do it again. I don't want to have to be a micromoderator.

Photo taken 3/16/2018 at Historic Wendover Airfield. In the background is the historic "Enola Gay Hanger" Under Col Paul W Tibbets the 509th Composite group trained to drop the first atomic bombs that led to the end of WW2. During WW2 Wendover Army Airfield lost 121 Pilots in 157 crashes. The Fedelcode Siren is original to Wendover and unfortunately sounded many times to the loss of lives of these young Pilots. Soon I will post a YouTube video of today's tests of the coded siren in action.
