As has been mentioned many times by regular contributors on this site, the owner has been unable to keep up with all the 700MHz Clearance changes. You'll also find many informative posts on various pages around this site, although some information is out of date, there's a lot of useful and historical information that you won't readily find elsewhere.
If you bothered to read the post I made which was immediately before yours (on p19), you'd have seen that it gave the (then) updated information. The only thing that's changed was that the 22nd April retune for Storeton Granada got postponed due to the covid-19 situation. Your post is misleading in that you have only listed the channels for Storeton Wales and made no mention of Storeton Granada.
The retune for Granada has now been announced as being on the 12th August when ArqB moves to C30, and L-LIV moves to C43.
So the updated list AFTER the retune will be (In the order where relevant) -
PSB1/BBCA, PSB2/D3&4, PSB3/BBCB HD, COM4/SDN, COM5/ArqA, COM6/ArqB, Local
For Storeton Granada UHF channels C28, C25, C22, C23, C26, C30 + C43 (Local)
For Storeton Wales UHF channels C45, C39, C42 (no COMs or Local).
Hopefully the site owner will get round to updating pages once the 700MHz Clearance is complete making this a very useful site containing historical information as well as being a help site for those with reception and other technical problems.
