Min safe vertical spacing btwn mount points for the mast

Mounting a Winegard HD-7696P
I have purchased a Ronard 4560 Adjustable Universal Eave Mount. I should have done the geometry before... At full extension, because of the slope roof, I am only going to get 14-15" inches of vertical separation between the two mount points for the mast. I am to use a 5' mast but I guess I do not need to position the antenna at the top. Given the size/weight of the 7696 antenna, is this separation generally enough to keep the antenna from being brought down by wind or a little ice (Atlanta GA) and wind? Are their any general guidelines regarding the distance between the mount points and the height of the antenna on the mast?
