I checked the sound on a video I took of one of them. It was a high "B", the 19th fret on a guitar.

Not B7. B.
Thanks, thebobmyers. And thanks Gravy for the question, I've wondered too.

Actually, that "B" on a guitar is written on piano music above the first short ledger line of the upper staff (treble clef). In writing for guitar, it would be written an octave higher. So, to guitarists, it WOULD be a high B, but to other instruments it would not. The guitar is written that way by most so that the range of the guitar can be fitted all on one staff with LOTS of ledger lines above and below, all so the poor guitarist doesn't have to learn to read bass clef, too. If that note was written in guitar notation, it would be on the FIFTH ledger line above the staff! I hope I didn't just muddy the waters here instead of give a good explanation.

To say that cicadas sing is a stretch since the males use their legs and abdomen to make that sound....

Not a very elegant solution, but here's the mp3, with a still photo so it shows as a video on YouTube:
