Sterling K5, the scales give it away, although it does look a little too short and fat. I wonder if there were smaller K-series sirens.

Wow thanks. When I was younger it was loud. Hasn't been in service over 25 years now.

It kinda looks like a HOR that's missing a cover, with that long projector on a horizontal siren.

Small town in Wisconsin brings another unknown, or really maybe a question from me:

I'm thinking that this is probably a Banshee, but there's just something about it that doesn't sit quite right about it.

That is an ASC OM-120 - something of a "Banshee v2".
Don't wait. Take a siren photo today.

Ah, that would explain the similarities. And also why I couldn't identify it right off. An artifact from ACA to ASC's transitional period, how novel.

I found that siren in Wallace, NE. I can't identify what siren this is...
The coordinates of the siren are 40°50'20.84"N 101° 9'56.03"W
