Splat. RF Network coverage for my simplex node

Running my simplex node on 146.550, I thought it would be nice to see what sort of coverage I achieve with a 1/4 wave ground plane vertical antenna.  Just in case Dick Tracy ever asks.

There’s a great tool being hosted by VK2BE at www.ve2dbe.com which lets you generate an RF coverage map easily.

That’s with my house at 13 m ASL, and the antenna at 9 m AGL.  The radio is 24 W with the antenna having 0 db gain.
