Be careful...

Don't connect your antenna system to the cable TV network.

Cable TV is a closed system, meaning no signal is to get in or out of the system. As a result, Cable TV networks are able to use frequencies that are assigned to licensed 'over the air' services including police, fire, ambulance and aircraft service.

If you connect an antenna to a cable TV system, you risk causing harmful interference to a variety of legitimate services.

You can disconnect any or all cables in your home from the cable TV network, then use those cables to distribute your antenna signal. Just leave the cable modem connected to the cable TV system.
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.)
