There is a Hurricane at Sirencon right now!!!

Sat Jun 03, 2023 10:20 pm

You read the title correctly. They’re putting it on Daniel Doolittle’s Thunderbolt blower right now. In all of my 7 years of being a siren enthusiast, I would have NEVER expected to see anything like this ever happen.

I had no idea that the Hurricane's horn was so big! I want to say the Thunderbolt's horn is about half the size from the last time I stood next to one...

She sounded quite great considering it used a Thunderbolt blower.
Howdy, I’m Kole. I own a 1950’s Darley Model 2 (Helmet Variant.), a DSA 4X2, and a few other items that are related to sirens.

Only video of it so far. The live stream should be edited and uploaded soon according to Montecat 33.

Wow that really is something. Did anyone measure its output
Just because you are right doesn't mean I am wrong.

How come there was a Hurricane at the event? Who owns it?
A British siren enthusiast. Previously lived at the furthest point from any sirens before co-discovering one very close to where he is located. Also features a great discomfort referring to themselves in third-person.

It might be Matt U's (videogamer's) hurricane, but I don't know either.
Proud owner of a Lion King LK-100 hand crank siren. I also can also brag about riding behind a "Climax" locomotive...almost 10 years later.

From what I've read on Youtube comments and video descriptions, such as that linked below, ASC themselves showed up with it (and a Cyclone)

No, the Klaxon SS6 is not a Sentry 95...

I'm glad a lot of people got to experience that. As a kid growing up in Garland I was mesmerized by these things.
