Default NS NXDN simplex?

Notice NS has added a newly licensed NXDN emission freq to my area on 161.475
https://www.radioreference.com/apps/...llsign=WQZF927

The following designations noted on license.

8K30F1D NXDN 12.5 kHz data (Wide IDAS, NEXEDGE)
8K30F1E NXDN 12.5 kHz digital voice (Wide IDAS, NEXEDGE)
11K2F3E Frequency modulated (FM) 2.5 kHz deviation analog voice, "narrowband 12.5 kHz" (FMN mode in RadioReference.com Database) - may also be 11K0 and 11K3 bandwidth

Not sure if up and running yet but will add that freq and see if I can copy any digital noise.

Norfolk Southern is licensing NXDN like crazy but I've seen little use of it anywhere. It's like "we're getting ready".... Lately, I see lots of locations in North Carolina getting updated each each. Here's any example:

Weekly North Carolina FCC Grants

Yeah Troy agree prob just setting up for future digi ops.
Wouldn't make much sense to setup NXDN in small trackage area like this unless
more larger customer track areas are added as well...Getting the area licenses just part of the equation
Notice that the Refinery in Delaware City by far their largest customer line not added here..
Maybe that rail tanker operation which is huge will get separate digi license.

I wouldn't be surprised if they don't add NXDN to all licenses, especially if they come up for renewal, if for no reason other than to allow the license preparation companies to add billable hours and items.

It is coming but it will be a long while before NXDN hits the mainline.

Should be NS Police T3, full-time encryption. Unless they're planning on changing the road channel.

Don't need to all you have to do is log on to the FCC website with your ID and password. Change and or add emissions, and pay the $240.00 per application. Which you will pay anyway. through a license company. You can do a lot without paying vendors.
