I wonder if you're not so confident going up on your roof you may be 
worth speaking to a couple of aerial installers and see what they say. 
Some may say you can get it, others may say you can't, but a decent 
aerial installer would be registered with the CAI 
(http://www.cai.org.uk) and won't mind going up on the roof.  I won't go 
up on my roof because I'm scared of heights and I don't want to suffer 
the same fate as Rod Hull (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rod_Hull).

Have a look at the CAI web site, they have a search facility to find 
installers who are registered with them.
