I had this titanium whistle custom made for me. It's 2-1/2" long with a ceramic glass breaker ball on the end. Enjoy!   :D

The new Fox 40 Sonic claims more than 120db:

I'm not sure how substantial a jump from the previous models rated at only 115 this is, as I imagine both would cause permanent hearing loss if you used it often enough!

This reminds me I have a storm whistle which fortunately I've not had to use  :salute: and I've never tested the 118~120 db claim maybe I'll test it at the UK meet up  :D


That said and TBH I treat mine as a safety device to be used sparingly when needed not something you would blast just for the fun of it  :tu: which BTW could cause hearing problems if used prolonged JMO  ;) After all if I need to whistle just for fun I can just blow a few raspberries  :D

But on a positive note, they don't wear out :D  You just need plenty of patience ;)

I'm not taking any more mod orders at present, sorry.

I always have a Fox 40 micro with me.  I've only needed it about 2 times in the last 10 years - both times to signal my progeny at a distance - but its good to have just in case.  As with most things we carry.

Found them somewhere online in a multi-pack that worked out good

Necrobump :D

I got a couple of ACME 649 survival whistles for our emergency bags. They are pretty OK for the total of €5 they cost :tu:



They are quite loud with little effort and their somewhat two-tone sound should be discernible from ambient sounds from some distance. I hope I never have to find out the hard way though!

They sure do look like good solid whistles.

I hope you have better luck with ACME products than Wile E. Coyote does.

When I was a kid I had a tiny whistle, shaped like a σ but without a pee. Man, that thing had a defeaning, acute sound! Sadly, I lost it at some point and never found another one.

It's a whistle, I mean, what could possibly go wrong?!

Although I suppose I could choke on it or break a tooth or get a stroke while blowing or suffer permanent hearing damage...





I also have one of their Scout whistles, it's fairly good.  :tu:

Heres the whistle I keep around. It is just an unbranded trinket I got from a product vendor.

Working as and with drivers I ocasionaly have to get the attention of somone about to leave the lot with a messed up order. Tested at 114db this is a mutch better option to yelling.
