That is a Cooper WAVES HPSA siren, that seems to be running FS UltraVoice controls. Great Find!

It looks like a Hormann siren to me, but I'm not a expert myself so somebody needs to correct me.

I'm recording it on the first Wednesday of September, so maybe that will help further. Thank you for your reply!

Thank you SO MUCH! While I was trying to find out which one this is myself, I went through Telegrafia, SiRcom, Bellbird and others! One more thing, do you know the model number of the siren? (and it's okay if not) Thank you again!

Do you have any exact locations for these sirens? I'd like to add them to my Canada map, and they're not visible on Streetview.

Top-left corner of the Jordan River Regional Campground. I also added the exact location of it on my Vancouver Island siren map earlier today. I'm also recording it very soon! YAAAAY!!!!!!! :D

Sirens with these horns usually all look the same, but it is identifiable as a WAVES because of the mounting configuration and the distinctive "WAVES" logos on the horns. Most manufacturers of these sirens imprint their logos on the horns.
Sirens may not be sexy, but they sure work.

after a quick internet search, this appears to be an HPSA-7104-R but I can't be 100% sure.
