I'm sure the OP already knows that, which is why the question is posted.

It seems the CB band is used for anything and everything. Illegal repeaters, baby monitors, digital communications, voice scrambling, FM mode, thousand watt amps, etc.

However, the ID could be an image from another frequency that has a strong signal. Without any more information, it will be difficult to give an answer. If you can record the repeater ID and decode it, then you will be a long way in getting an answer as to what is going on there.

There have been a number of repeaters set up in the CB band over the years. Probably the most famous was by Larry WA6SWG, now SK.

Edit: Here is another thread discussing this particular CB repeater but there are a few wrong comments in post # 41 like Larry did not work for TPL but he did work for Fannon Courier and designed a popular CB and amplifier for them and also for Pace. I introduced Larry to the property owner where the repeater lived and was found by the FCC and I also sold Larry some of the equipment he used to build the repeater.

Larry's repeater even made news in Popular Communications magazine on page 20 here: https://www.americanradiohistory.com...ns-1988-06.pdf and in Monitoring Times magazine page 18 here: https://www.americanradiohistory.com...es-1987-12.pdf
