I overheard this morning Palm Bay PD calling for units to come into the stations for radio maintenance/service. Anyone aware of any changes that might require some reprogramming in the immediate future?

Palm Bay FD is now being dispatched by their PD dispatch. They are no longer being dispatched by BCFR. It took effect 7/6/21.

Is their "FD Primary" channel still labeled as "Primary" or is it now labeled as Dispatch?

Not sure.

Talkgroup 1206, (09-066 is what they go responding to calls on and small incidents.
Talkgroup 1201, (09-061) is their station paging

1206 was originally labeled as Tac 6 (according to RR), and 1201 was labeled as primary, prior to changes being made to reflect the new changes. They are still using Tac 91 for the larger incidents.

New CC for Brevard County North trunked 8/16/21 851.750
I've made this change to the dB. Good catch!

Just FYI, with EDACS systems, any freq can be a CC. They generally rotate through every so often. I don't know why they even bother in the db.
Absolutely correct. However, the Brevard system has <historically> only used the channels listed on the dB page. There are some changes afoot in Brevard... are they happening right now? Don't know - but I suspect sooner or later you are going to see more small nuances like what Whistler saw above.

I gotcha. What I meant about changing it in the database is that if you're monitoring an EDACS system, you already have all the freqs programmed anyways - it wouldn't matter if the cc changed.

Quick question since you appear to be in same area of Palm Bay. I am fairly new to scanning. Bought and SDS 200 and am loving it so far but I have a question about upgrades. Are anu of DMR, NXDN, Provoice upgrades worth it for our area. I was thinking of doing Pro voice and NXDN for Ham Radio TG but want to make sure before I purchase that it will be worth it for our area

i will reply here and send you a message.

The DMR and NXDN upgrades are entirely dependent on what you want to monitor. Unless there is a particular need to buy those upgrades, I would not pay for them. I will message you privately about provoice.
