Don't Connect CATV to OTA Antenna System

An active cable TV signal includes frequencies used for aircraft communications and navigation. If you connect the cable TV system to your antenna you will very likely cause harmful interference to aircraft, fire and police frequencies.

As JC has already said, "DON'T DO IT."

If the cable TV folks have been fired, you can re-use the abandoned cables and splitters in the building.

A thread re. Grounding
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.)
