Re: Altha, FL mystery siren

It definitely looks like a small electronic siren of some sorts, possibly a homemade type? It doesn't seem likely to be that because of how professionally built it looks. It does seem to also have a controller and antennas on top of it, and it does seem to be installed around 2013. It kind of remind...

Re: Markleysburg, PA

It kind of looks like it was made by C.A.M. Manufacturing Co, as it has similar projectors to this https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/cam-siren-model-17-fire-alarm-siren-1829836381 Perhaps it's a different model of it? It's quite possible, but there are multiple sirens that have very similar or...

Re: Towns wierd use of sirens.

It doesn't only have to be that the fire department is using it for fire calls, either. It can be for anything like noon blasts, courtesy blasts, or even for special events happening, like a Halloween blast or a "first day of summer" blast! It also doesn't always have to be for the fire de...

Re: Google not recommending siren maps anymore?

Is there something we can do about this? We might have to have another list of popular maps on the Siren Board again to make sure that the maps are actually accessible to people who haven't saved them or bookmarked them. I'm probably guessing that Google isn't thinking that the maps are "offici...

Re: San Francisco during the Apollo 11 splashdown

There's also this: https://diva.sfsu.edu/collections/sfbatv/bundles/238513 I think the Heath Engineering "Instant-Blast" horizontal siren can be heard going off at 0:09 in this! This is amazing! If I'm not mistaken (which I usually am), you're actually the first siren enthusiast to find t...

Google not recommending siren maps anymore?

(guess I could've posted this on the siren maps page) Recently, while searching up state siren maps, I've noticed that Google isn't recommending the maps as one of the first options anymore, like it did not too long ago. It isn't with state maps, either. It seems that every map doesn't show up anymo...

Re: Dutch Flat, CA - What is this?

The google street view shows that It wasn't here before, so I'm guessing it's also on display. There doesn't seem to be any power running to it either (unless it's very hidden), so it's going to be really hard to figure out what it sounds like. Unless it has more ports than horns, it's probably a 6-...

Re: SirenCon P-50 Explosion

From what I heard, it inhaled a chunk of fibreglass ultimately cracking the chopper. Close up videos are already being released. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cBdALpJCfAk The P-50 had already been decommissioned previously after seizing from ingesting fibreglass. However, fibreglass ingestion doe...

Re: SirenCon P-50 Failure

I've never seen the inside motor cover of a P-50 before! That motor seems pretty small for a 50HP, unless it looks like that just because how massive that horn is. It seems that there's a lot of empty space in the back as well!
