I don't live in the US so extensive research of the regs doesn't interest me but I did read the one on Larry's link and although it waxes lyrical about what the "whistle" should sound like, I never saw anywhere that said you have to have one.
So if having one isn't a requirement, how can the sound of the one you have be a requirement? Another beauraucratic screw-up, IMHO.
