Just went nearly blind reading through the old board archives. I think one of the old posts indicated someone had vintage Federal and GE Powercall siren tech manuals in PDF form that they could e-mail. Probably just tired, but I couldn't find the posts again when I tried. Does anyone have this information? I an interested in Federal PA200, Interceptors and Directors if anyone has the info, and of course, the Powercall. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I have a PA15A 1E myself and searched a while when I got the siren.


I knew nothing about sirens so I wanted to make sure I wouldn't fry anything... ;)


Glad to know those will help you!


Good luck in your projects!

That manual is for the PA20A series B, not 2B. Series B was in production during the mid 1980s and has high-pitched wail and yelp tones like the PA20A series 2E.


Series 2B is a completely different siren. Series 2B (c. 1968) has low-pitched wail and yelp tones. I have the manual for series 2B.


There are many different versions of the Director and Interceptor models. The circuit boards and siren tones have changed over the years as Federal tried to 'improve' on the design.

Just a suggestion:


Would it be possible to group catalogs in manufacturer's sections?


e.g:


Fedsig


-twinsonic


-beacon rays


-Aerodynics


Code 3


-SD


-XL


-MX7000


and so on...


I know this would be a big job sorting all those catalogs but you could then go straight to what you want to look instead of rummaging in all those pictures...

I have a couple of vintage Federal Signal catalogs that have some exploded views of some vintage federal signal lightbars. They look like this:

If you all would like a specific lightbar, or if you want a higher resolution image, you can PM me, and I'll try to accomodate your request. Just remember, I'm not doing this for financial compensation, I'm doing it because I enjoy the hobby, so I may not be able to get back to you immediately. Enjoy.

I have finally scanned my 1963 Federal catalog in color if anybody is interested. I scanned at 200 dpi so it is a large pdf file, approx 17mb, 48 pages. Right click to download:

Here's a few Martin Signal and Fiamm pages. The Martin Horn'sare from 1972 and the Fiamm's are from 1974. It seems not much as changed in nearly 40 years! A special thanks to Dr. Dennis Stouffer, who gave me these.

WAOow!! :crazy:

Thanks Sir!

1990 was one of the few years where the 5200 and 994 series were offered but the 8000 was not, it had been replaced by the advantedge at this point. This is a real transitional period in the whelen line, and the time frame most of my collection of whelen comes from.

Ooh!, I have rarely seen here model 99 or 99-PA; yourself, John, have you?
I think that's the model Twin 994, which can be seen on the car of Sheriff, at the beginning of First Blood ...
The lights on the Sheriff's '78 LTD II in "First Blood" were Yankee Model 354's, not Whelen 994's. The crossbar was a Yankee product as well. In some scenes you can actually see the "Yankee" emblem.

Does anyone have the back cover of the Yankee catalog? I'm referring to the edition featured in eLighbars' literature album on Photobucket. I once had that exact same catalog and I remember a cartoonish character (Michelin man-like) whose head was actually a red beacon.

I apologize if this isn't the right section to post this but since this is where I found the pic:


How rare and how much would the bottom light "ROCKEY-RAY" would be worth, in decent shape with a clear dome? Was this model also available as a rotating beacon or only as a 4 way flasher, and if so, how much are these worth in either cases?


I'm asking because I might be able to pick one.
