Thinking about an outdoor Yagi. 3 stations I listen to are fairly close and in the same direction. Another is further away and almost 180 degrees from the other 3. For reasons I wont go into, I don't want to use a rotor. Can I stack 2 Yagis pointed in different directions an combine them with a reserved splitter? I also have tuners in two different rooms. Can I then split the combined antenna feeds to run coax to 2 different rooms? Will doing either of these work or screw things up.
Also, suggestions for currently available Yagi welcome.

Not many make an outdoor Yagi anymore. This one from Stellar Labs might be your only option!
I would start by trying one antenna aimed at the more distant station. The closer ones might be picked up adequately on the backside of the antenna. (My TV situation is similar - close in stations on the back side of my antenna come in fine.)
Then you can use splitters to route the signal where you want it.
I agree with aiming for the more distant station first- see what you can get-
Rather than combining the two feeds, I might put a switch in - Antenna A for the close grouping and B for the distant station-
