Here's a Modulator on a short metal tower. Unfortunately the wires are cut and the siren is abandoned in place.

The siren came first, the tower was built around it.

Here's a STH-10 in Lansing, MI. It crosses off low mount and weird mount at the same time:

I'm not sure what came first here. The pole or the Thunderbolt 1000? This is in Hoover AL, and was replaced by a 2001 on the other side of the road.

I really like that mount! It keeps everything together in a compact package that was probably a lot easier to install than traditional Thunderbolt installations.

And there's another compact Thunderbolt installation. Judging from the nearest neighboring pole and the condition of the steel pole relative to the condition of the siren, I'm thinking it was originally mounted on a wooden pole in that area. It never ceases to amaze me how little steel can secure a 1000+ lb siren package like a Thunderbolt system to the side of a pole :shock:
