The UK is allocating 3 transmitter channels per site and there is a spacing of 3 channels between each allocation ( an active channel surrounded by 2 blank channels. These blank channels are used in surrounding sites.

The channel numbers listed are the equivalent Australian Channels

UK group for the new restacked allocations and not existing allocations.
A: 20 - 30
600 MHz Non TV band 31 - 38
B: 40 - 50
C: 51 - 60
D: 52 - 65
800 MHz Non TV band 66 - 80
Current wideband UHF antennas for Europe are designed for 470 - 864 MHz Our wideband antennas are designed for 526 - 820 MHz.

By comparison our restacked channels
Group A channels 6 - 8, 10 - 12
Group B channels 28 - 33
Group C channels 34 - 39
Group D channels 40 - 45
Group E channels 46 - 51

So the UK does not use band 3 for TV
Their group A only contains 2 of our channels
Their group B contains our groups D and E
Their group D will only be used for mobile phones and Wifi here.
