    Identify this Halogen Lightbar

    Been watching a lot of "To Serve and Protect" (Canadian version of COPS) lately and keep seeing this lightbar show up on the Edmonton PD cars. I cannot seem to identify it. Almost looks like a TurboBeam but it has the black gaskets between the lenses. Help?

    Beacon Ray Model 17

    Finally took the plunge and invested in my first "real" vintage beacon. Prior to this I've really only collected lightbars. Just a run-of-the-mill 17, but you've got to start somewhere I guess. Wet sanded the dome and tried polishing the base. Couple questions: - How do I know if I have an...

    Federal Signal H.I.D. Spectra System

    Thanks 894. Not necessarily needed, but if it's not too much effort it'd be interesting to see. Was hoping to see it in action. Just curiosity is all.

    Federal Signal H.I.D. Spectra System

    Anyone here have video/photos of the Federal H.I.D. Spectra System? It's the system with the fibre optic-like "pipe" setup with a single bulb powering multiple lightheads. Seems like it was interesting in theory but probably a poor performer in practical use. Can't seem to find much out there...

    Beacon Ray Oscillating

    All, Entertaining a Beacon Ray posted locally. Model 17 manufactured in '63 with glass red dome. Seller claims it oscillates, but was this an option on the 17? Not seeing it in the Beacon Ray guide here on eLightbars. Also, fair condition - where would you value this? Thanks

    Is eLightbars dying out?

    There just doesn't seem to be nearly as much traffic or activity on here as there was 15, 10, or even 5 years ago. Where has everyone gone? Is it a lack of interest or another platform?

    Hello from the west coast of Canada

    Unlisted, aren't you ex-Ontario or am I imagining things? I just moved out to the LML about 18 months ago.

    The Greatest Find I've Committed to.....

    Not downplaying your find, but what exactly is it about the AB that makes it the centerpiece of a collection? I love this light too, but is the demand artificially inflated or is there a quantified reasoning behind this piece?

    Fed Sig MML1-FD

    Interesting light, but what is the practical purpose in the moving cover? Is this just a steady burn?

    Update Me on the Trade

    Thank you both for your responses. Firehawk is white base with TCLs. Interesting to hear how values have shifted, not because I am looking to purge anything, but rather because I am interested in expanding what I have. I have been with this site since the early 2000s, back when I was in...

    Update Me on the Trade

    Wow! It's been years since I have been on this website or even looked at my lightbars. Last week, during a trip back to my home city (on the other side of the country now), I went to check on my lightbars in storage. Really got me pumped up for the hobby again. I just feel so out of touch with...

    Tried searching for this, but can't seem to find reliable answer. Considering starting beacon collection, looking for value before buying. Federal Signal Beacon Ray: Model 17, Serial 2R...., clear glass dome, r/w bulbs, appears to be good condition. Thanks!

    Jetstream UPDATED VIDEO 1-14-13

    Brand new domes will give this thing the NOS look as externally the Jetstream is mostly dome. Nice video by the way.

    the start of my collocation federal signal Vision

    Don't rewire the bar - it's worth waiting around for the brain. Took me a couple months to find an affordable one (~150$) but I have had fun with it ever since. In the mean time entertain yourself with Federal's configuration guide here:
