That is a cell tower. Yes, that's extremely cursed!

Apparently someone appreciated the old Sirex enough to put it on a structure built for a form of personal communication that was only a dream at the time it was manufactured 8-)

I'm guessing that the previous siren used the same tower, and the siren's owner just re-used it. I've never seen a 2001 mounted like that before - neat find!

Substation/Bosai Musen in Yuza Town, Yamagata. Mounted on the truss tower and is paired with a Seikosha SPF siren. This town has a lot of these scattered around.

The thing is, there was no other siren there before the 2001.

Good catch - that is an interesting way to mount a 2001 from the start. I wonder if they had other plans to consider a siren mount like that...

This Model 2 in Minneapolis takes the cake, IMO. It's mounted on the side of the building, which is something you certainly don't see every day.

I don’t have any real sirens, but I will one day. But for now, I just enjoy making homemade sirens.

Another oddity from Quebec... who thought this was a good idea?

Here's a single head pre-1928 M embedded in the roof of a fire station...

World's shortest "pole" mount:

Fire department here decided to mount their Model 2-3Z on top of the grain elevator across the street

A lot of tower for a tiny siren

Here's some more!

A Thunderbolt in Berkley, CA. The mounting for this seems kind of overkill:

An absolutely ridiculous Thunderbolt pole mount in Marion, OH:

Another Thunderbolt in Finlayson, MN with a ridiculously thick pole:
