Not sure what you will hear on these frequencies when they test these sirens. I use to work for security at the Salem plant, when they tested these sirens [back then many years ago, it was every tuesday morning] they would sent us out in the community to make sure they went off. We would have to let them know when we were in position so they could sent the tone to activate them.

My experience has been (New England) that these are Paging/DTMF tones.

Not much to hear. A few of them up this way shared the Voice channels, and you could hear the Polling of the Sirens periodically reporting back to the main server their status.
