• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Hi All,
Does anyone happen to know what COBRA is ie. law enforcement, DHEC, SWAT, etc.? I've entered all the known TGs from RR database on the Johnston site PAL800 CC, but have yet to hear anything after a couple of months. Just curious...

Re: COBRA

Thanks, Searay, that was very informative. Disappointed though...no Sylvester Stallone with a '49 customized Mercury.
Actually, I didn't know that SC had such a team. Wonder if they're volunteers from FD's and LEA's?
Thanks,
Barry

That is exactly who comprises the COBRA teams. They usually specialize in a field and each person brings that specialty to the table.

Honestly, if you're not hearing COBRA comms in your area, that's probably a good thing. If you are, chances are there's something unpleasant happening near by.
