You can reuse the mounting (J-pole) that the dish is on... IF the OTA antenna will not touch the roof or other parts of the building - and - the antenna will not be aimed into the roof. Most satellite mounts are not on the north side of the building because they need a view of the southern sky. Satellite matrix switches and diplexers (which may look like OTA/CATV splitters) need to be removed so that OTA signal can pass.

Solar panels will pose a problem if they are in or close to the path from the antenna to the transmitter towers.
If the well is dry and you don't see rain on the horizon, you'll need to dig the hole deeper. (If the antenna can't get the job done, an amp won't fix it.)
