Default Where can I find the frequency plan for post 700 MHz switchover?

I have 4 TV aerials on my house, Sandy Heath, Oxford, Sutton
Coldfield and Waltham.

Via a few Televes Avant 5's, I have combined all 4 aerials so all
TVs get all four regions of ITV, BBC1, Oxford TV and 17 odd BBC
local radio.

I know that all four transmitters will have some changes as part
the 700 MHz clearance programme, but where can I find the post 700
MHz clearance allocations?

Time was when such was a good idea, but given that the only
differences between the regions are the local news and Inside Out on
BBC, why bother?

And, of course, you can get all the different regions via satellite.

As for combining terrestrial aerials, how are you doing this? In the
days of analogue, simply using a wide spitter/combiner could (and,
more often, would) result in an unacceptable amount of multipath
echoes. To do it successfully, you had to ensure that each group of
channels was adequately filtered before the various frequencies were
combined. However, I suppose that digital may be more tolerant, and
you might get away with it.

Yes but how, for instance, can you watch more than one BBC mux? Agreed
the TV may ask you after tuning which region you want to watch but
thereafter the only way you can change that is to retune.
