Today, I went to Carthage, MO to film this Federal Signal 508-128. This would be my first 508 recording and I'd say I was quite impressed how loud it was. I also forgot my ear protection so I was forced to cover my ears unfortunately. Sirens in Carthage are tested monthly on the second Wednesday at 10 AM (weather permitting).

After the filming the 508-128, I went to Pittsburg, KS to film this Whelen WPS-2907. This siren replaced a Thunderbolt which is located not far from it near the aquatic center. The test was rescheduled for today since the first Wednesday was a holiday. Sirens in Pittsburg are tested monthly on the first Wednesday at 12 PM (weather permitting).

Nice recordings! Is that Thunderbolt near the Whelen you recorded still in place? It was still active last time I was down there for a test so I'm wondering if it finally kicked the bucket. They were both located incredibly close to each other for active sirens back then.

Thanks! It was still up when I was down there, but it didn't sound or rotated durning the test. I checked after the test to see if it rotated, but it was still in the same position as before. I do have a few pictures of it, but I'm having some trouble attaching them. So I'll try to post them later if I can.
