The Coast Guard has announced it will install mariner radio-activated sound signals on seven remote lighthouses along the coast of Maine, according to an article on PressHerald.com.

The devices allow mariners to activate lighthouse sound signals on demand – the signal shuts off after 60 minutes – using a marine radio and will replace antiquated foghorns, which can emit sound continuously in foggy conditions.
