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.
