That reminds me of several occasions where a preamp located as close to the antenna as possible (the shortest coax jumper that was practical) appeared to isolate the high VSWR from the down-lead. This is one of those possible exceptions to the generalization that a preamps' job is to deal with loss on the downstream side. There's almost always an exception to a given 'rule'.
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.)
