1. A method for wireless communications at a user equipment (UE), comprising:
receiving a control message indicating a plurality of synchronization signal and physical broadcast channel (SS/PBCH) block indexes corresponding to a plurality of SS/PBCH block resources, the control message indicating that a first index of the plurality of indexes is associated with a first antenna of a relay device positioned on an interior of a vehicle;
generating a first plurality of SS/PBCH block measurements for the plurality of SS/PBCH block resources; and
performing a first cell selection procedure to associate with a cell of the relay device based at least in part on a first SS/PBCH block measurement of the first plurality of SS/PBCH block measurements corresponding to the first antenna satisfying a threshold.
