    First of all, thanks to every one for every answer, as I was answered to Rookysailor the material from action electronics looks too weak for the use I need, referring the switches I normally make my own radio controlled switches, enclosed I send you two pictures of two of my diferent switches, I have more models, and even this two can work in mutiple programmable ways, but my main problem arises because I knew the horn programmed by Rijsard Malinowsky, and the sound is almost perfect, but, in the same board still work the motor sound, and I need to silent the motor, unfortunately I had no time enough to come inside the program, and change the code for not to have always motor sound, in the meanwhile will be good for me to locate an electronic foghorn, with nice, realistic sound, that's the reason to ask you, because i don't know everything, and all of you toghether know much, much more than me, then thanks again for your valuable answers

    As you wish Escrich,
    Surprised you have had to repair Action modules๐Ÿ˜ฎ
    Try Googling RC Sound Systems or modules, you should get a zillion or two responses!
    Happy hunting.

    Hola Escrich,
    I agree with Rooky and Scratch about the supplier; Action Electronics at Component Shop, but not necessarily with the the choice of horn!
    You want a deep tone foghorn so go for the P13 Foghorn module which is designed to do that.
    The Twin Tone is more of a car / boat "coming through , get outta my way" type of horn.
    Link and specs attached.
    https://www.componentshop.co.uk/p13-foghorn-hooter.html
    You will need at least a 4" speaker for the best sound though.
    You might also consider an RC switch to activate the horn - such as the P43 single, or the P44 double switch would allow you to operate some lights as well.
    https://www.componentshop.co.uk/action-electronics/switches....
    The P43 is out of stock at Component Shop but you might find a dealer on Ebay or Google who has one.
    The switches are easy to wire up and work very well๐Ÿ‘
    Happy honking๐Ÿ˜‰
    Cheers, Doug ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Hi Escrich.
    I can agree with Rookysailor.I had one the same and it was a good system.
    Also try Ebay under sound modules and checkout item number 123744287978.
    There is another site on the internet called Mr R C World that makes them.
    Good luck.
    Regards Bill

    Hi Escrich, can recommend this brand from the UK,
    I have the same horn sound in one of my tugs, but you will need a speaker.

    Good morning to everyone, I need to have a good foghorn sound in my current boat, could you recommend me something?, preferably something I can mount by myself, I have no much problems to work in electronics.
    Thanks.
