I am aware that the latest product sheet for the T-128 states that it has 3 standard signals: Alert, Attack, and Fire. http://www.americansignal.com/wp-conten ... -final.pdf

After scouring every piece of information that I could find, I am left wondering how many custom signals could be programmed into a standard ASC T-128 siren controller. A few years back, I recorded a T-128 in my town that sounded a signal which resembled the Attack signal, but was 3 seconds on, 3 seconds off instead of the described 6 seconds on and 6 seconds off for the Attack signal. I could only describe that as fast wail. I have every single piece of evidence that this siren has the ASC controller, by both the actual box and the signature growl signal with the rotator pause. This siren is most likely from late 2009 or mid-to-late 2010, as it has the logo with the 3 arrows.

The date that this siren sounded the "fast wail" signal was September 23, 2017, which, after some research, was the supposed end of the world. I assume that the signal was the Attack signal with custom timing, as one kind gentlemen commented on my YouTube video that ASC CompuLert does not have a "Fast Wail" activation button. If anybody has an ASC controller of this type, or if anybody works at ASC, any information towards the subject would be greatly appreciated.

I thank you for your time.

I'm thinking that siren was programmed that way from the factory. What else do they have in their system?

The system has, as far as I know, 14 T-128s and one RM-130 that was left over from the previous system. If you take a look at my siren map, you will see where each one is. I'm not sure if the RM-130 is still active, but it hasn't been removed. Said RM-130 is in my profile picture.

You might be able to "order" a special tone directly from ASC when purchasing?

Might be a possibility....but I'm wondering why my town would go out of their way to do that...?
