your best bet is calling on either 144.200 or 144.205
there are very many stations in the are that will be able to hear you from FM07, I have even worked into the grid myself with only 15 elements and 100watts.
it will be a very helpful tool to log into the on4kst chat page to help arrange contacts of just chat with other VHF'ers
there are several nets through out the week also on 144,222,432 and even 1296
if those bands tickle your fancy... just get on the bands and make noise, someone will respond... dont expect pile ups like on 20 or 40m, but there is fun to be had.
link below to the chat, use IARU 144/432 Region 2http://www.on4kst.org/chat/login.php?band=8
I hope no one gets upset for posting links
