It's definately making it quieter over Canadian skies (above FL290).

Has anyone had any luck receiving CPDLC messages in North America or know more about the system ? It seems it can be done, but as far as I know the ATC messages are encrypted so you can't make them out even if if you can recieve them ?

I LiveATC VDL2 feed would be cool.
