Federal Signal Thunderbolt 1000T Waggener High School Louisville, KY Siren #7 Test recorded on July 12, 2011 Distance from siren: 518 feet
Picked up my bud Johnathan (jw870206 on here) and we headed to Waggener for the noon test. This siren sounded awesome, never dropping in pitch, and it doesn't show any signs of its age. Out of all the Thunderbolts in Louisville's system, this one is probably the cleanest. Its paint is fresh and it sounds awesome.
I could be wrong, but at around 2:59, is that the St. Matthews Ave. 2001 ringing in the distance? Could be!
As for the shakyness- I lost the attachment for my tripod and didn't make it to the store to get another. The "vibration" you are seeing isn't me shaking the cam, it is heat reflecting in the lens. It was a hot one, with the heat index over 115. Still, this was not really a smooth video and I will have a tripod for the August test.
Enjoy! These things are dying off fast!
EDIT: Not sure what that tiny box is under the rotator box. Anyone have an idea?
