I flew through SFO on my way home last night... the weather in the Bay Area gets low and wet at times... we were in heavy snow from the Woodside VOR, @ 10,000' all the way till short final at about 1500'. No doubt weather is a factor, but, you need a new antenna and coax.
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.)
