How many splits are there? If there is a splitter in the Cable junction box, does it feed several rooms, or is just the one TV being used?
You could try putting terminators on the splitter outputs that are not being used, to see if there are some reflections from the ends of unnecessary cables, or a bad cable that's letting some interference in. That would tell you something, and the splitter, even if not needed, will still drop the level a bit...so, you'd know that it's not really the problem. If bypassing the splitter (and feeding only one set) then makes things start working, you'd know the level was very marginal...but, as close as you are to the towers, I doubt that's going to be the issue.
