Emergency backup radio (pet 2000) on 120.7 approach frequency. Train crew in or near train yard were talking on 120.7. They were loud and clear. Conductor X was the name I picked up on the radio. Reported this to the supervisor with the air traffic manager present. Was not logged or reported to maintenance. This could be a bad situation if we were relying on the pet 2000 at that time.
