I suppose you could JB Weld an extension to the bottom of the star base and install a mercury switch wired to a horn relay. Or, for about $50, you can get a removable star.

yes it can be done. it takes a 12 relay and a 0 to 12 volt buzzer and a couple of micro switches hooked in paralel to give the relay a grnd circuit and you can get these buzzers from newark. send me your address and i will draw you a schematic if i have time. working 84 hrs a week
