  • Start Sequence Timing shall be from the beginning of any individual or group of sound signals.
  • Sound signals shall govern, even if visual signals are also used.
  • Short sound signals are 0.25 second in length
  • Long sound signals are 0.75 second in length
  • When more than one sound makes up a sound signal, the space between individual sounds is 0.25 second.
