Weekly Thunderbolt 1003 Test, Sarnia ON

Post by SirenMadness » February 20th, 2017, 6:28 pm

Went out and recorded one of Suncor Energy's three Thunderbolt 1003s. Only time I've heard the 'Bolt before was from the train station about three miles away maybe ten years ago, so I thought I'd sneak a view from the park right behind the cemetery, 100 feet from the siren! It's perched maybe fifteen feet off the ground. First impression hearing one up close, I must say it was quite impressive! Packed quite the punch even in hi-lo. My bad about the jumpy camera. :>

Do you know if all three activated? And yes, those Tbolts do pack a punch. You can hear them in Corunna from 2-3 miles away.

Hey, sorry for getting back to you so late. Not sure whether all three went off. I suppose the other two roared to life as well, but standing a stone's throw away from that one, it completely drowned out everything else. The hi-lo timing is a little odd, that's for sure. Shame they test so short.
