Following yesterdays loss of com7 and com8 and the lack of any official report, I decided to log the signals more thoroughly.
The program I'm using is CrazyScan2: https://sourceforge.net/p/crazyscan/wiki/Info/
CrazyScan2 was set to loop mode with auto-export, where it scans the RF spectrum and saves the result as a numbered png.
The number is the pass-number.
The time of the first pass was 07 December 2017, 23:42:22.
com7 disappeared at pass 43 - 08 December 2017, 00:00:36
com8 disappeared at pass 47 - 08 December 2017, 00:02:26
com7 reappeared at pass 142 - 08 December 2017, 00:46:48
com8 reappeared at pass 150 - 08 December 2017, 00:50:26
The time of the last pass, #350 was 08 December 2017, 02:18:50.
I have made a video with a frame rate of two passes per second, which can be downloaded here:

Jay: It depends mostly on whether your aerial is group C/D and if your present signals are high enough to overcome the losses incurred.
For me, given that I get a reasonable signal for com7 on UHF 31, I will likely manage, although GIM and L-MAN don't look likely prospects.
The DUK Coverage Checker shows mostly excellent reception for my postcode but doesn't even list G-MAN.
