You can't mount it on the dish, but you might be able to mount it on the dish mount if the dish is removed and the existing mount has diagonal braces. Those antennas are too big to safely mount on an ordinary dish J-mount.

Your reception location is not the best; it will require some experimentation.

EDIT:
The antenna must be high enough so that the signals can clear the peak of your roof.
