Hearing other channels on COMM

I remember seeing a post about this a few days ago while I was searching for something else, but unfortunately I couldn't find it for reference, so my apologies that this has been brought up before.

I've noticed while going through my CAT ratings that in many cases when I tune to a specific channel (lets say Santa Maria Tower, for example) I can hear pilots from other channels, and the controller's communication with them. Is this normal for PE? Or should I only be hearing ATC and pilots speaking on the specific channel I'm tuned to?

This is normal for PE. Clearance, Ground, and Tower frequencys have repeaters so that pilots can hear other pilots regardless of frequency and distance. This is to help prevent blocked calls
