Maybe listen on the uplink frequency? My first impression was that it sounded like guys on simplex with BaoFengs and the courtesy tone left on. Could be they picked a frequency away from area repeaters and use it without a care. To cover 20 miles around the city they’d probably have the power up high enough to key the bird. Stranger things have happened.

I am in the area of a suspected repeater. Also in the area of the towns
mentioned to could be that machine.  I'll watch for the next AO-92 pass and
announce my call of the repeater a few times and listen to AO-92.  So if you
hear "KV1J" it is me testing for the interference.  I have not looked at the
pass schedule yet but I can try a couple passes.
