The Signal Device

I came upon this thing at the Anclote River Park and still don’t understand it’s functions exactly. Obviously it’s meant to be heard and it has a lighting device. The black item on the left appears to be a sensor but what does it sense? Lightning strikes? Thunder? Fires? Or bad actors and drunks hanging around the beach!

  1. Some kind of civil defence (sorry, defense) system. “The Russians ARE COMING!” Perhaps the black dome is a satellite dome which connects the horns and orange flashing light direct to Area 51. I’m guessing the circular dish above the horns is some kind of weather protection but then, you hardly get rain in Nevada do you? Maybe sun protection? Would be interesting to know what the purpose of the set-up is – presumably there are more of them around?
