The ACMA has UHF 32 listed as an interim channel assignment:
So clearly they don't have plans to keep C31 on that channel and they need to move it elsewhere with the obvious candidate being VHF10. The only other viable option is to move it to UHF 27.
That's because they are
operating under an interim arrangement - a ministerial determination (this
, which amends this
amends informs 103 (4A)©(ii) of the Radiocommunications Act
) was made in June last year to temporarily extend their licences from 31/12/13 to 31/12/14. That was a result of the Convergence Review - which was put on hold because it was a whole 'nother hot potato
They're definitely up in the air - but, as I said, when I asked ACMA about it late last year nothing was on the cards. Feel free to contact
them yourself if you want the absolute latest info; they don't bite.
(At a guess, 27 would be an absolute last resort and even less likely since it's outside the normal planning rules and doesn't solve the 'problem' anyway...)
(edit as shown
(edit #2: Now, South Yarra ... that's an interesting one. The commercial/national channels are all in an SFN with Ferntree Gully / Melbourne Inner / Safety Beach / Rosebud, but it has RF Ch 42 as "UA/MGV" while it's just straight UA on the others.
I think GoeForMoe had something to say about that earlier...)
