It will work but it will be far from optimal.  All you need to do is get a
big drill bit and  drill through the roof and put up an iron galvanized
pipe.  Put a pipe flange on the end and bolt the GPS antenna to that.   You
will need some metal flashing and roofing tar and then you will have a
first class setup.  You run the coax down the pipe.   The timing antennas
are pointed on top so snow falls off
