"What makes it brighter then the anchor light? It seems to use the same LED emitters..."
Personally, I think folks who use the word "strobe" to mean "rapidly flashing LED" should be beaten to death. Slowly and publicly.
A strobe tube is a strobe tube, and LED is an LED, and no matter how you torture an LED, overvolt it, pulse it...it will never have the raw power of an aviation or commercial grade STROBE LIGHT using a real gas discharge tube.
A blinking light may attract attention, that doesn't make it a strobe.
"Buy three, get the fourth one free!" means "25% off when you buy four", there's nothing free about that one either. Same folks, pulling our language and society down the drain. Keelhaul 'em all. Sell the TV rights to Fox.
