Hi mate. I assume you mean this one: http://www.interruptor.ch/sirenschematic.doc I find that siren interesting too, but I'm not going to build one as I have other projects. Anyway, I think the best way is to identify, source and collect all the components together first and lay them out, then think...

Thanks interruptor.. these are really fine historical clips. I especially like the Johnny Clarke ones. I find it interesting the way that vocals were recorded inside what appears to be a narrow concrete bunker with rough walls.

Thanks guys. The variable clock idea based on a Hex Schmitt trigger or a 555 timer oscillator is an excellent idea. Although surely, we must be overlooking something and it can't be that simple or else someone would have done it already.. or would they? For the sake of reggae science someone should ...

Audacity can reduce the noise and is free.. The latest version of Audacity (I'm using the Linux one) is very good... noise reduction works OK if your recording is at 96khz and you use the noise reduction very lightly.
