I'd put a "timing" antenna in the attic (used Symmetricom 58532A/VIC100s, which I have, are cheap).  I have one near the ceiling on the upper floor and it's fine for a modern (SMT) GPS but only acceptable for older (T-bolt) units.

I also have mag puck in south facing window.  The 58532A is much better.

Finish up with a GPS with some internal visibility (e.g. SMT), a Symmetricom/Agilent/HP splitter and Bob's your uncle.
