10/22/2011: Sadly, JC got upset and vandalized his post... The gist of it was that one could recycle an old C-band satellite dish by replacing the microwave band feed-horn with a UHF dipole or similar element...

Original response:

I would expect a simple folded dipole or 'V' shaped whiskers located at the prime focus would be the easiest replacement for the C-Band feed-horn/LNB. Directors and reflectors not located at the prime focus would have little signal to act on.
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.)
