    POV law change

    You volunteer PA guys are so lucky that you are aloud to have any flashing lights on your POV's... Up here in B.C. Canada, and more than likely the entire country. We can not have/display any colour warning lights, air horn or siren in/on our POV's. Jealous!

    I love to see these classic Whelen bars! I have recently re powered mine with a waterproof Tomar neobe power supply. Works great now.

    Restored Cadillac ambulance

    You are correct Skip, The clear Beacon domes are from the Late J Dorgan Jr. Although they are not period correct they are decent clear replacements! Bill also managed to purchase the correct base for his double tone siren.. I'm sure it has been installed already. I accompanied Bill a couple...

    Oscillating and traffic clearing lights thread

    It is a shame that oscilating light is vanishing from the majority of emergency vehicles over the past decade around my part of the world.. Thankfully Power Arc and the new Roto Rays are experimenting with oscillating/spinning LED's. Federal Signal began the process of discontinuing their...

    Whelen ROTA-BEAM Family History

    Another great thread!! Thank you!! I picked up a clear dome beacon a few years back from an auto wrecker with no tag on it.. I had figured it was Whelen product although it said Ingram underneath. The pictures here confirm it as a Whelen "Senior". It had two red plastic filters glued ifo two...

    Whelen 8000 w/ colored "flying saucer" optics - Update 1/6/13

    I too have recently aquired some Whelen 8000 parts (lenses and filters) from a friend. I was puzzled how the two red and blue filters that came with the lenses attached to the 8000 metal base.. Now it make sense. It's a UFO that holds them in place! Thanks for sharing those awesome pictures...

    Q1 Demonstration Stand

    B&M siren has a beautiful diamond checker plate "low profile" (6inch high) box made with all the switches and solenoid needed for their Super Chief siren display. Ya do not want your box too tall as you'll be top heavy with the Q1 way up there. Unless your "box" is heavy. Ya don't want the box...

    Can anyone identify this mechanical siren?

    Dominion Auto sold these tiny sirens in Canada. I'm not sure who produced them. They came with a rear bullet and a base similar to a CP25 pedestal. There have been a couple of these on eBay recently. A true peanut whistle. Loud with no coast. I have one like yours but chrome.. It's missing the...

    Whelen model 8000 strobe-bulb question

    It's nice to see other 8000 Fans out there. I just re-lamped my all red 8000 and added rear alternating sealed beams.

    New eQ2b siren info now online

    Thanks Mark for sending it along. I also forwarded it to several folks. I'm glad to see the amp draw has been reduced! And the air horn tone not interupting the primary signal is the way to go for sure!! I'm still tempted to put one on my Visa.. Ugh.

    Favorite Mechanical Tone

    I have to agree with some of the other posts. Whelen kicked Federal's butt with the Xecutor siren way before the eQ siren came into production. And IMO it sounds way better in my opinion today. (The Xecutor has a switch to make it sounds more mechanical or less). As far as true electro...

    New eQ2b siren info now online

    My local FS dealer is offering the eQ siren for 1199.00 (Cdn) until the end of the month. Still too much dough for what it is. I'm still puzzled why FS added yet another siren tone with their eQ siren. IMO it should just be the Q wail nothing else. I realize some communities need the faster tone...
