The current weather patterns are causing reception problems across the UK, it's worse in some areas than others. So [lease be patient for the weather to change. Do not retune.

I'm still somewhat puzzled by the 700MHz Clearance plan for the Sandy Heath transmission area. According to the schedules there are no further retunes planned - but RF Channels 51 (Com4), 55 (Com7) and 56 (Com8) are still in use - and all are above 700MHz.

I have seen comments on the web that Com7 and Com8 will no longer be available within the next two years or so. Is that nationwide or just for some areas? If it applies to Sandy Heath this would remove the transmissions currently on 746MHz and 754MHz - but it would still leave Com4 in the 700MHz band on 714MHz.

If Channels 55 and 56 ARE lost, are there any plans for Com7 and Com8 to be reassigned to other channels - or will their services be lost for ever?

I'll be grateful if someone can clarify the Clearance definitively.

GeordieLad: According to Digital UK, COM4 will move to UHF channel 33 at Sandy Heath early next year. COM7 & COM8 are expected to closed from all transmitters by mid-2022. UHF channels 55 & 56 sit in what will be the centre gap of the 700MHz 5G band and is expected to be auctioned off to the mobile networks for use as supplemental downlink spectrum. Some transmitters will loose COM7 & COM8 this year, presumably because no one is prepared to pay for the costs of re-engineering them when they will only be around for another 3 years.
