    Examples: Our Capitol Hartford used Twinsonics in the 70s. I don't know what was used in the 80s but by the early 90s Edges were the units installed. New Haven was the same. As you can see by the early 90s. http://www.policecarwebsite.net/fc/copcarpics/newhav5.jpg. Other examples...

    can anyone positively identify this?

    I doubt this one was a 440. Most city cars in CT had 318s or 360s some others especially the Volares even had 225s. The troopers had the 440 in their Fury's and Gran Fury's. The 184 was red and the Whelen's were blue.

    Federal CT-1 lightbar

    Not much is out on it as much as it's cousin the CTS 1. It appears to have been on the available prior to the CTS 1 but never caught on. Is there any more information anyone has on it, like when did it hit the market, who used them, was it any good, and when was it discontinued?
