Two options, but not what you are hoping for... You can combine one UHF antenna with one VHF antenna.

1) A passive combiner with a UHF port and a VHF port known as a UVSJ Taking this a step further, you can use a HLSJ to combine a low-band VHF antenna with a high-band VHF antenna.

2) An active combiner. Example: Dual Input Preamp

There are a variety of choices other than the examples I've offered.

A typical 2-way splitter will not provide the isolation and filtering needed to keep the two antennas from interfering with each other.

Four options to do what you are asking for:
(1) a rotator (not really what you are asking for, but functional to a degree)
(2) Conversion to MPEG-2 over IP over Ethernet - Thread 820 ($) to ($$)
(3) A complex combination of CATV commercial grade equipment ($$$$$). Custom Antenna Combiner or Single Channel Digital Signal Processor
(4) John's suggestion below.
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.)
