Arriving into Punta Cana and still being able to contact New York approach

As you can see I am arriving into MDPC and I am still able to hear communications all the way from New York 🤨. Is this normal ?

@IFATCLee3440 you are the controller in charge of NY Center , can you still see me on your map ?

Whats your callsign?

Jet blue 1869

At FL220?..

No at 9000 ft

No can’t see you

Yes. If you haven’t tuned out on your end, you will remain on frequency indefinitely (or until the controller closes). Do not expect to receive any services, however.


Ok thanks @Thunderbolt

That means I can hear other planes and controllers communications but they can’t see nor hear me , correct ?

That is correct.
