Below is the text from the DARC web site (translated by Google)

UK repeaters do not transmit in the 1260 - 1300 MHz sub band and so should not be affected by this but we should all be aware of the potential impact of operating 23cms simplex...

Munich ATV repeaters DBØQI must take 23-cm-sending out of service.

The operators of the Munich ATV repeaters DBØQI have been asked by the Federal Network Agency, the two 23-cm-sending to 1276 MHz (analog) and 1291 MHz (digital) to take out of service. This requirement are the operators on 4 March complied. The 23-cm band is allocated to radio amateurs only on a secondary use basis. With this step, make available to the troublefree operation of the primary user safe: Near Munich operates the German Aerospace Center (DLR) in Oberpfaffenhofen a control station for the satellite navigation system Galileo. Specifically affected the ATV spending the E6-channel of the navigation system to 1278.5 MHz. The inputs of the ATV repeaters and the 10 GHz channels are not affected by this step, say the operators of DBØQI on their website db0qi.de . According to the prevailing state of knowledge other relays are not affected.
