a/b switches don't pass the dc voltage from the sat receiver to the dish correctly. you will get all kinds of error codes from your receiver. you can use that line as long as it is a direct connection, no splitters, a/b switches etc. You can use a pair of diplexers instead of an a/b switch to connect off air and satellite, or cable and satellite.
Kudos to GB National Park. Mary and i have camped and hiked over 40 national parks in the last 15 years. Standing atop Wheeler Peak in the Rockies within a pristine environment with very few visitors is a trip worth remembering.
You can use a balun (balanced/unbalanced) to connect a 50 ohm device to a 75 ohm cable. https://www.solidsignal.com/pview.asp?p=859955&utm_source=google&utm_medium=cse&utm_term=859955&gclid=CjwKCAjw8NfrBRA7EiwAfiVJpXNmrQbN67ya8jelBHZZClP96AlikZvsdvtH-dnJpMvp84u9OR3o2hoCFQAQAvD_BwE
