Re: Question about Thunderbolt mounts.

For something like that the siren would definitely have to be mounted to the pole somehow. That blower pipe alone wouldn't be strong enough to support the siren unless it was braced against the pole or strapped to the pole.

The thing is, there was no other siren there before the 2001.
Good catch - that is an interesting way to mount a 2001 from the start. I wonder if they had other plans to consider a siren mount like that...

Re: Uniquely Mounted Sirens Thread

That is a cell tower. Yes, that's extremely cursed! Apparently someone appreciated the old Sirex enough to put it on a structure built for a form of personal communication that was only a dream at the time it was manufactured 8-) Saw this 2001-SRNB in Albemarle, NC, I thought is was a bit weird for...

By the fancy bushes and all around it, i think this is a display.

Wouldn’t that be a bit loud?
I think that's the point for both use cases :P

I think the OP had an interesting question. I hadn't really thought about the use of sirens before the world wars.

Re: Repainting/Restoring sirens - Questions

For cleaning and painting, I'd completely disassemble the siren as far as I could, clean out the gunk with dish soap and hot water and let it dry.

Re: Miscellaneous Siren Photos Thread

I'm always amazed to see sirens kludged together like that. I guess I'm fortunate to live somewhere that has funding available to repair or replace broken sirens.
