This has to be the lowest mounted siren in the US. It is 8 feet above ground in a park right next to playground Located Ironton, WI[img][img]http://i139.photobucket.com/albums/q319 ... CN1528.jpg[/img][/img]

That's rather disturbing. Still, it looks to be on a hill.

What's the height relative to the 'warning area'?

I've seen a ground mounted model 5, complete with a little roof built over it and a concrete pad poured for the base. It was since relocated to a pole several years ago. But that T-beam is low!

Last week, I went on a trip to West Texas, and in Marathon, they had a Federal Signal 2001 mounted about 10 feet off the ground. :o

Wow, i can't believe they would put a Thunderbeam (or any siren) that low to the ground. That is just crazy!

It would be funny if the fence was electrified to keep out nosy kids.
Also I hope it is not a dog park although it would be funny.

Not the lowest, but it's pretty dang low. Allot of the structures surrounding this siren are taller.

Yeah, with 15hp and 128dbC you'd bet it would.

In Los Angeles County , circa 1955, at least 3 strands of Bobed
wire above the fence line, today Razor wire :twisted:
if we had working
T-bolts and Chryslers. Must be a Nice kid :wink:
neighborhood free of
Gangs and spraypainted walls .
Ahhhh but life was better everywhere in the late 50's and early
60's for large CD siren systems. :cry:
