Bwana Bob, you could try that but I would make the coax long enough to 
be near resonant on some low band, and then use the dish as you state 
for a capacitance hat.   The larger diameter of the shield as antenna 
hot conductor, and the dish,combine to broaden your bandwidth.  A wide 
range tuner would be needed to use such an antenna on more than one 
band.  You would have to use standoffs for the coax to lessen coupling 
to the building, in those areas where you run the coax along the edge of 
a roof for example.
