I have the same issue and had to get some extra long t&K brackets but they were very easy to obtain. Fitted them myself using chemical anchors and so far have been good.

Hope this helps

There will be a cost what ever you use. You can very easily make brackets yourself with sections of angle iron and a welder.

Just a thought but what about a Satellite dish mount? They should stand out far enough to clear the eaves and even have a tube/pole mount built in as the actual dish is mounted to the bracket on a bent pole.

Something like THIS mate, you can get longer ones than that though.

If it don't come out far enough to clear the eaves, cut a thick piece of wood a little larger than the dimensions of the mounting points in the bracket, screw the wood to the wall, weather protect it then screw the mount to the wood.

Just an idea of the top of my head stan.

Or if you get a long enough ally mounting pole you could get someone with a pipe bender to put you an Z or S shaped bend in the mounting end so the pole looks something like the picture.
