The new digital protocols being used are 2m and 70cm are not just call "Digital". Digital refers to wide range of protocols used to transmit data across the whole spectrum. You should refer to them as "Digital Voice" or by one of their protocol name:
Fusion | YSF, DMR, and D-Star.
Here is a brief description of the protocols and definitions of terms. Down the road who know which of these three will come out on time and become the new standard. Locally we have started using Yaesu's system because their portable, mobile, HT equipment is very popular out here in the hills.
