June 2nd 2008 civil defense siren warning system test.
Sirens heard: in the order they fire up:
(1)Maunalua Bay- Thunderbolt 1000T, super-high pitched. It was a close 1/4 mile away from my position. You can hear the siren's supercharger.
(2)Niu Valley Shopping Center- STL-10: 1 mile away, busy blowing out the eardrums of customers at the KFC it's located by.
(3)Kuliouou valley- Modulator 3012: 3/4 mile away
(4)Hanauma Bay - Thunderbolt 1000T, normal. 2 miles away, on top of a hill.
(5)Hahaione valley - EOWS 612, faintly heard in the distance after all the other sirens quit. Sounded for more than 4 minutes. 1-1/4 miles away.
Background noises: annoying construction, nice beach waves, light traffic noise, minimal wind.
Recorded with a Roland Edirol R-09: AGC off, low gain, low pass filter on, input level: 30 (max).
