Hi, I m Rob, KN4YJE out of Lugoff SC. Got my Tech Ticket October '19. Been on the air since Feb '20. I'm a total Noob. Running a Baofang 8W handy talky with a 2m/7cm 16" antenna on the roof of the truck. Now for the question, I have noticed that when I am monitoring a repeater, I sometimes only pick up half the conversation. I fully expect this running Simplex, but apparently my understanding of how a repeater works is flawed. Its my understanding that if a signal goes into a repeater its broadcast such that if I'm close enough to pick up one half of the conversation I should be able to pick up the entire conversation, not just the signal of the radio closest to me (major assumption there). I have also noticed it only occurs on one particular repeater based in downtown Columbia. So what did I get wrong in Repeater 101?
