Yes, 10 & 20 element deltas. Installed hundreds of them in the analogue days. Fortuitous reception of non specified channels could be expected if the local signals are strong enough.
Suggested antennas from my experience:
Fracarro log periodic: LP45HV (LP45F for F connect version)
Hills yagi: TMX18B5 (part number FB607081B)
Phased arrays: Hills ULTIMAX 36 (part number FB608542) or ALCAD AP369. Since I have no experience of signals in your area, I'd be plumping for a phased array, since almost without exception that is what I use in poor areas.
The commercial/national towers at Mt Barrow (if SBS can be called national) are 300m apart with an antenna height difference of 17m favouring the commercials. (according to ACMA records)
INSIDE the house tin roof, facing Mt Barrow out through the hardiboard gable end.
Well, that is not so unusual. I've done that
. The antenna's in the middle of the roof, looking out the front. Come to think of it, over the years I've mounted antennas in many places other than on the roof of the building. Whatever works, and works as well as can be expected.
