@ DL: Agreed.

@ PhayenK: If reusing a satellite dish mount, beware of the OTA antenna being so low that it is aimed into the roof, a source of signal reflections and attenuation.

I would expect the dish mount to be on the south side of the building... you are aiming at stations NNW of you. I can't help but wonder if your roof blocks the line of sight toward Mt Wilson.
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.)
