Super SirexEdit

HOR's Super Sirex model was their most popular. According to ARS user BadgerSiren, one model has been in use since 1953. Two versions of the Super Sirex appear to have been produced: a two-horned version and a single-horned version. Only one model of the latter has been reported (in Hamilton, Ohio). One fact that is surprising is that all dual-headed(single-headed) Super-Sirex's were all built to rotate.(As stated in a forum about the HOR Story in


HOR also produced two different models of omnidirectional sirens
