Take a look at item number 12 on the table(highlighted) which says to extend the band to 446.0-446.2 from January 2018.

Like all official documents they like to make them as difficult as possible to understand!

How did you manage to get Ofcom to place your website logo on those tables when they published them?

I am waiting for to manufacturers to announce the legal 500mW 16 CH analogue devices. I think they are waiting for Europe-wide decisions.

They're not 16 channel analogue devices. They're digital and only use the digital channels for digital and the original 8 analogue channels for analogue.
If you're interested in digital voice, check out my YouTube channel:

Hi guys in Britain and elsewhere. I did some research with the 16 channel analogue matter and found out that they are allowed here in Finland and the neighbouring Estonia. I also found out that Germany did this change recently, starting on the 29th September. But no legal 16-ch radios so far. In Sweden they seem to have local dual 444/446 MHz radios with eight 444 MHz channels at 2W to use inside their country and the European-wide 446 MHz at 0,5W.

Waiting for the 446 16-ch sets.

Many thanks for the information.
