Tyfon Horn Updates

Here is additional information on the big Tyfon horn located in the foremast of QE2:

More info on the MKT 230/75...It was last offered in 1985, it is 6' long, 30" bell opening, close to 200lbs, it is a 4 piece horn brass head, brass neck, aluminum body,and glass fiber reinforced polyester bell/opening. I belive it was on one of the Cunard ships along with an MA18/75, but have no confirmation on that.

The above information was confirmd on the Horn and Whistle Board, and later confirmed the ship in question was our beloved QE2.

Longing for the day to hear QE2's voice once again......
