If the shades are plastic they will have no significant effect on the antenna performance. If they are metallic they will have quite a bit of effect which will be frequency dependent. If the distance between the antenna and metal shade is just right, you may actually get a small boost in directional gain. If the spacing is too close or too far, you would expect reduced antenna performance.

The coax may be RG6 but I can't be certain.
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.)
