Thanks for jogging my memory TG...

In the past I've thought about using line amps as RF switches. Simply power up the amp to pass signal, power down to block it.

Likely the most practical option for a consumer grade off-the-shelf solution. Cost and availability of parts would be better than an industrial or commercial product.
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.)
