I'd definitely opt for RG-6 which will have significantly less loss at the mid and upper end of the UHF band compared to RG-59.

Are you aimed into nearby trees or buildings?

Have you panned the antenna left and right to be sure you have the best aim point? And just to be sure, the mast clamp is on the back of the antenna, the 'whisker' shaped elements are the front, closest to the desired station.

If needed, two preamps to consider are the Antennas Direct CPA-19 and the Winegard HDP-269.
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.)
