2m Local Frequency
I'm often listening to 145.225 Mhz 'simplex' in the Melbourne area.
I'm at 580m ASL, so if you're anywhere within approximately 100km of the Melbourne CBD, there's a good chance I'll hear you if you call and I'm near the radio.
The map below shows my RF Coverage profile for a radius of 140km from my QTH.
My on-air observations line up very well with the theoretical coverage shown in the map. Contacts into Melbourne are mostly always 60dB/9 in signal strength with 25 Watts into a twin 5/8th in Phase Vertical antenna.
The shadows to the North are caused by Mt. Blackwood itself, as I'm located about 120m below the peak.
