Hello there!

Today, I was in Winchester, the town inside Clark County Kentucky. They test their sirens every Wednesday at noon. Their system comprises of Whelen Vortex R4 "Finbacks". These are one of the few counties left in Kentucky to use these sirens.

I tried filming one of their sirens, but it did not sound. I tried calling the EMA, however they did not answer.

I still have some photos that I took which I will post below.

That vortex has a blown up driver inside it.
