I have heard they have been switching to digital (NXDN) I listen to them frequently any truth to this and I also don't want to start a minor comment tsunami but any word if they are ENC.
Moderators if this does goes South on ENC. lock the comment.
Thank You

The Dundas subdivision in southern Ontario is still analouge as of yesterday. Any word on who has switched over?

I have not heard any in my area, but a look at IC database shows signs of railroad 4.8k NXDN being licensed: e.g. Concord area, 160.530/161.340 (callsign CKU476), and Montreal. Look for Occupied Bandwidth (4kHz) and Class of Emission 4K00F1EDN or 4K00F7DWT.

161.00250 	   	 	                BM	0 RAN	Extra	Extra 	      NXDN 	Railroad
You can also add 160.77 which I believe is CN's Toronto Maintenance Centre.

All are clear if you have the means to monitor.

No problem with encryption talk. The rules here forbid encryption due to audio streaming discussion in any thread other than the dedicated thread in the RadioReference Tavern.

Thanks for the input everyone I see from mciupa that NXDN is being used in Toronto in the clear so in the future I see them all also migrating over to digital. I do have the means two dongles and DSD+ although it took over 1 year to learn how too run the system while using the same computer for other things slow learner.
