Clever idea, but..
Most rotary joints have more phase and amplitude variability than the
So you're stuck with rotating back and forth with a cable that's flexing
and now you get to measure the phase variability of the coax.
You really need to have your entire GPS system antenna and receiver on
the rotating table (which will need to have temperature controls, etc.)
Oh, what a pit one can descend into with the goal of reducing everything
to a minimum error.
