Best Siren Ambience?

Thu Oct 10, 2013 12:33 am

In your opinion, which city has the best ambience of sirens? My choice would be Manhattan, Kansas which has an Allertor, Modulator, T-1000, SD-10, 2T22, Model 5, with many WPS-2810's and 2001 DC's.

^You can clearly hear a 2001, 2810, Allertor, 2T22, and T-1000.

P.S: I did a search and didn't find a topic on this.

The ambiance heard in this video always creeps me out.

This is basically what I hear once a month, unless the older sirens actually activate for some tests... :problem:

The Boys town ambience was my first favorite. I have really enjoyed some Bethany, OK ambience recordings (there is at least one I've seen, and it was awesome).

the best I can recall are 2 classics I'm sure most of us old timers will remember. They're both audio recordings: one is titled "bolts&m10" which was recorded in Somerset PA by Steelman Hiles around 2000 of their 2 1003s sounding 2 rounds of attack before switching to rise hi-lo with their 16 port M-10 sounding in attack for a fire call at 2am. Another is from the 1st siren contest titled "onthehill" recorded by Mike Stalnecker which is an 8 port 5 and a 2T22 souding in attack for a fire call in PA. Another good one is another Mike Stalnecker recording of a WS 1000 and 5T sounding in attack in PA. I have all 3 recordings on my desktop I'll dig them up and post them, unless someone else happens to have them on hand.

Lawton, OK and Grand Island, NE are the first two that come to mind.
