Monday, November 3rd, 2008. 11:45am. Civil Defense monthly test of a Federal Signal 1000T (3-phase, 5/6 port ratio, "super-high" chopper voltage tap). This siren is located at the intersection of Keahole St. and Kalanianaole Hwy. I was at about 50ft away from it. Used an Edirol R-09(AGC off, LOW CUT on, MIC GAIN low, INPUT LEVEL 22-30) + Sound Professionals SP-TFB-2 Binaurals. Slight clipping: this siren was hard to record. You can also hear the supercharger pretty good as well. This 1000T is the one of the highest pitched ones on the island of Oahu. Sounds like it's gonna explode.

    If they ever take this one down, do whatever you can to get ahold of it, lol. Something unusual is going on causing the blower to not slow down the chopper like it normally would. No one seems to know exactly why that is though.
