Unless there are obstructions such as trees or structures to contend with...

I agree, the signal levels shown in your TVFR strongly argue against the use of any amplification. (only if you are dealing with unusually long cable runs and splitting losses would I consider using a distribution amplifier.)

I would expect a smaller, less directional antenna such as the RCA ANT-751R would be a far better fit to the signal conditions shown. No amp or combiner would be needed either. (Even unamplified rabbit ears should do well in these conditions provided the building construction doesn't block signals.)
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.)
