Re: What kind of sirens does your city use?

I also spend lots & lots of time in Manton, Michigan, so I decided i'd post there. (Oddly enough, i'm posting this while watching a train from the front porch!)

Manton has an RSH-10 Thunderbeam, located behind the 'Manton Station'. I'm planning to get a 1st Saturday test of it sounding (if it works, the reflector dish didn't move at all in 2017). [youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gb6DUuKT6Tc[/youtube]

There is a removed Sterling M-10 location atop the Museum. Absolutely no idea where it ended up.

Whelen WS-1004 OR Speaker Array atop the campground offices. I'll grab some pics of it this Summer.

Well In My Town Kyle, TX We Only Have A Single Inactive Federal Signal Model 5 That's Been Sitting There For More Than Likely 50+ Years But They Kept The Shape Of It In Great Condition!

My County Hays County All Together Has 14 ASC T-121's 1 Sterling M-10 And A Thunderbolt Pipe That Used To Have The Entire Siren But Sadly Removed For No Reason.

My town Electra Tx uses one federal thunderbolt 1003 downtown, 2 federal 2001s on the north and south side, and 2 federal eclipse one on the eastside and one west of town. They also have an old sterling siren on an old oil derrick behind the police and fire station close to the tbolt. It hasn't worked in years...

Huntsville Alabama: get ready for a long list
A crap load of 2001 sirens ( all variations except the round back model)
A few sentry 20v2t sirens
A couple of model 2/2t sirens
And 2 or 3 rsh 10 thunderbeams
The army base (redstone arsenal) has a system of asc e class sirens
They also have some 2001 sirens but those are not controlled by the arsenal
There are also altec Lansing sirens in the nasa area, these have been disconnected because the master controller with all the tones was trashed in the late 70's, these sirens were part of huntsvilles original system of altec sirens that was trashed in the late 70's but the sirens survived and were moved to redstone in the hopes of redstone using them ( they are used as a backup system and if the eclass system were to fail the altec sirens would be retrofitted with asc electronic controllers and moved around the arsenal) at each of the altec sirens there is a amplifier box that would amplify the tones coming from the master controller and send it up to the speaker drivers, these are on because there is a fan inside that is running, so these sirens are actually on
We also have a Sentry 16v1TB
just wanted to tell you from anither source that the thunderbeam on jordan rd didnt go off for todays test, also have you thought about making the tests longer? or testing all signals, in both redstone and the county?

That’s a pretty crazy testing schedule! But cool. 8-)

Jefferson County is mainly made up of 2910s and 4004s, but there's a 3T22 and an (inactive) Model 2 sitting in the mix. Down in DeSoto, the town has one of it's sirens (a WPS 4004, probably a finback but it's hard to tell from a distance) mounted on top of the Union Pacific car shop. Arnold, MO has it's own system of ATIs set up (like 4 of them, but there may be more). Up North in St Louis County, they use a system of 204 Whelen 2910s. https://www.stlouisco.com/LawandPublicS ... ngSirenMap
