Amateur Television (ATV) transmissions in Melbourne are mostly via the VK3RTV amateur television repeater on Mt Dandenong although a number of operators make simplex contacts on both 70cm, 23cm and 3cm. The ATV repeater is in operation 24 hrs a day and provides coverage of the greater Melbourne area.

The output of VK3RTV is 444.250 MHz ( Below Channel 28 on most UHF Televisions ).

Voice contact with other ATV'ers can be made on the ATV liaison frequency 147.400 MHz FM simplex, it is also a good idea to keep an ear out on this frequency when operating ATV. If unable to transmit on 147.400 MHz and require a picture to be put up on the repeater then drop a short note to the email below and I will see what can be arranged.
