This was shared on Facebook. I am assuming this is some sort of custom Sentry, because Sentry has done custom sirens before.
It's a 10V with only half the horns.

Less of a mystery siren more of a mystery blower. Found this gem in Sweetwater, TX. It is probably a A1.. but why is the blower square?

edit: It was just a akward angle, it isn't square.

Another siren enthusiast posted this on Sentry Siren's page. As it turns out, it is a 3V8-H.

Not so much a mystery, but I'd appreciate some clarification. Is this just a Banshee missing its top shroud? Or did ACA make a siren like this for a special purpose?

This unit is in Pritchett Colorado on Randolph Street between 3rd and 4th. I doubt it's active as there is a new Sentry 15/20VxT next to it.

Banshee 110, with maybe a 'disk' from a Screamer on it?

As mentioned in Discord, we can tell you for a fact it is definitely a electronic carillon. These are very common on top of churches that can't afford real bells. Considering these use the speakers similar to a Master Blaster, as a lot of electronic carillons do, these are DEFINITELY church bells.

Kind of weird, but last night 02.06.17 in Lake Worth, at about 11:15pm a strange siren was heard going off for about 15 minutes. Then it stopped for about two minutes, then came back on for another ten minutes. I called the LWPD and they said that they had officers checking it out, because a ton of calls were coming in. She indicated that NAS JRB said it wasn't coming from the base, Fort Wort said it wasn't theirs, and neither did White Settlement. I know people in Azle heard it as well.

The strange part was the sound it made. I'm trying to get the video from my daughter's phone, but it was not a tornado siren. Sounded more like an old time air raid siren?? Very strange, and I cannot find any info on it online other than a few other people asking questions on their facebook pages. If I find the video, I will edit a post it.

I'm sorry, but this is far too little information to identify what make/model of siren this is. Sirens are sirens, there isn't a specific "tornado" or "air raid" siren.
