Did anyone ever find out where this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3vd8oso0IiY siren was coming from? In the description, the cameraman says there is a tornado alarm on top of the hospital, which leads me to believe this was filmed at the North Little Rock VA hospital. Where could this WAVES be located?

No, it's actually a Cooper WAVES. I'm wondering where it is.

Heres the answer to your question. The WAVES belong to UAMS.

That does make sense... but the note on the map says that it is on ASC controls, whereas in the video it is obviously on WAVES controls.

They apparently upgraded them with ASC controls within the last few years. You can tell something changed because the WiFi antennas that the sirens came with were removed. These WAVES HPSA-3108s, and they originally had TRX-401 IP radios installed inside the cabinets. Eaton dropped support for those radios a few years ago, I think around 2015. From what I understand their activation software still works with them, but once the radio goes bad you'd have to replace it. WAVES's equipment is pretty costly and it's all internet controlled only, so they probably decided to just get rid of the infrastructure for the system and go with something more conventional. This is why very few cities use their equipment and you see them at college campuses more. The Marine Corps exclusively uses their equipment.

I believe for more conventional radio-controlled stuff WAVES refers their customers to SiRcom USA/HQE-Systems; WAVES used to do VHF when they still offered the 3100 series but stopped at some point. They seem to have some kind of partnership considering they have nearly identical literature on both of their websites. SiRcom USA actually uses WAVES's naming scheme for their models and even adopted the "SPT" phrase from MadahCom's old lineup. Of course MadahCom's sirens were just rebranded SiRcom sirens with a TRX radio, so if they have a partnership of some sort it makes sense.
