Attached (unless this list is set to strip attachments) is a 2m repeater coverage map generated by Radio Mobile.

It turns out that both SPLAT! and Radio Mobile use Longley - Rice as their propagation engine.  Thus, given the same inputs, they should give identical answers.  (But note that the inputs include not only user inputs, but also the terrain elevation and soil conductivity databases, which may differ between the two implementations.)

For the attached run, some of the inputs are guesses and/or default values (TX power, line losses, etc.) and may need to be updated with corrected values.  I based the height above local ground on the length of the coax runs back in the day when the shack was in the basement, obviously a rather rough approximation since the shack was below grade and the coax runs were not 100% vertical.
