Maybe my problems weren't entirely my own fault after all.

I'm in Melbourne too.  Did you know that (analogue only) channel 31 
exists?  Not that there is a lot on it that I want to watch.  Also 
there are repeater stations that service small areas that have poor 
reception on the normal channels.  I think that they are all in the 
upper range of UHF.
