Listening to NYSP Troop K and I am hearing some troop cars being repeated on the base frequency 155.505. As near as I can tell, it is only Zone 2 units I am hearing. I am not hearing any Zone 1 or 3 units. Just wondering if anyone is hearing this as well and if anyone has any insight as to why it may be happening.

I have been hearing this too, I have no idea why they are doing this. My guess is as good as yours. Alto maybe once I heard a Zone 3 Unit being repeated on 155.505, But yes mostly like you said, it's Zone 2 Units.

Im situated in the middle of TMC and SP PK so I receive both dispatch centers, and now with these troop cars in the field being repeated on 155.505. Units transmitting are stepping over each other like crazy and I can't follow the conversations all. Very frustrating.

Years ago the NYSP setup repeaters at certain sites in the region. I distinctly recall it happening with Troop F, and vaguely recall Troop K also testing one or two. I believe this coincided with the narrowbanding, when they replaced some of the infrastructure.

Sounds like someone turned one of those repeaters on in Troop K. Whether that was intentional or not, I guess enjoy it while it lasts.

Thanks. I will keep listening to see if I can hear zone 3 or if it stops. I live in zone 3 (TMC) so if anyone were to be repeated I wish it was zone 3. Zone 2 (Poughkeepsie) always had a much stronger signal so hearing the dispatch is nothing new, but got thrown off when i started hearing the cars as well.
