Re: UK FS 2001-130 test!

Good day folks, Today at 4:30 PM, the piercing sound of a Federal Signal 2001 echoed across Carrington Business Park in Manchester. Turns out, it does so every Thursday! I assume, given the date of upload, you meant every Wednesday ? Posts on the local subreddit would certainly support that idea :l...

Newton Aycliffe INEOS - 14 December 2023

A recording of the 50th weekly test of 2023 for Ineos' Newton Aycliffe sirens - the model of sirens is unknown, but it uses multiple 10-12 port sirens. It is one that has been filmed several times before, but I wasn't going to turn down the chance to film this one given I could! ghPdJNUBpb4 More to ...

Re: Solenis - Low Moor (UK) December 2023 - Klaxon ES2S

To be fair, there's a few videos out there - one of mine included - of an ES doing hi-lo and/or alert, with examples in Port Talbot and Grangemouth both recorded doing the former tone as well. One video does exist of the new Broadmoor siren doing Wail on its only recorded test (it's tested silently ...

Re: UK Siren Map

Ah my mistake, must've not been at the right angle. I was on the closest road I could access via StreetView. Atleast it's still there though. :lol: It is notoriously hard to see on street view, especially from Chaplains Hill. However, rest assured it is probably still there, and likely will be unti...

Re: UK Siren Map

That's awesome! It's cool to see that one of the Broadmoor Klaxon CS8 sirens are still around, even though the controls are gone. I hope someone can get this siren and keep it, if they can get it down. Also, isn't this the only one left in existence? It's the only Broadmoor one left. There other CS...

Re: UK Siren Map

Broadmoor Siren G has also been removed now, unless I am completely blind and it is still there somehow, but I cannot find it anywhere. It was still there when I drove down and checked for myself in mid-September. Main control boxes gone, but siren (and one of the boxes) remains. I am fairly confid...

I'm finding plenty more sirens in the north of England which I will be able to go to in the near future, so watch this space!

Re: MOD Longtown siren test surprise

The first siren sounds electronic to me cause it has that typical allmost squarewave type of sound 99% sure it's a GP6 or GP10, which both have a single 10-port rotor. They can wind up very quickly on a strong/stable power supply, as can be heard in this ambience/audio of a GP6 from YouTube: https:...

Re: Range of Klaxon FP6

It's probably possible in perfect conditions, but extremely unlikely in this case given the distance and amount of obstructions. According to Klaxon, their GP6 siren outputs approx. 135dB at 1m, and 69dB at 2000m, assuming a free field with no obstructions. To put this into context, 69dB is roughly ...
