Rohn (and probably others) makes a 1-1/4" x 5' pole with 2 of the 3 tripod legs. The bottom of the pole has the third "foot" on it (rather than a third leg. You mount the foot for the pole, then slide the other two legs down until the post is plumb, then tighten the bolts and attach the other two feet to the roof. Inside the end of the pole are the bolts and weatherproofing pads, too.
Don't forget to ground everything and use good RG-6/U and good connectors :) .
Cost about $17 at our local electronics house.
