I don't know why they couldn't have put the new
phone allocation at the top of the UHF band instead of the middle

Channels 61 to 69 a the top end have already been given over to 4G,
now they're coming back for a second bite for 5G from 49 to 60, TV has
to be squeezed in 21 to 48.

Does that mean that channels 55 & 56 are only temporary, and when we
have to tune lower down maybe a group 'A' aerial will work again?

They are temporary until after the next but one election, at which point
terrestrial broadcasting will be reduced to one mux carrying the five
basic channels on a national SFN.
Objectors will be hushed and told that since 'everyone' has fast
internet and/or satellite they should use that.

No, you're being too positive! Freesat will be shut down too, so the
only option will be the internet or the new Sky-Net box. Both will be
monitored, as the Sky box will report back via its internet link (it
won't work without an internet link) as to exactly what you have

I'm posting this now as I won't have time tomorrow morning...
