PMR446 Channel Expansion (Kenwood)

Kenwood Communications have published information regarding the upcoming implementation of extra PMR446 channels. 

The document appears to suggest that the analogue changes are already in effect with the digital changes coming 1st January 2018, however precise implementation dates are down to individual countries and the latest information from OFCOM was that no changes would be made in the UK until 1st January 2018....

I also note that they appear to have adopted channel 8 as a calling channel (something the 'serious' PMR446 user will already know all about).
