[b-hebrew] Can YeHWaH be pronounced at Exodus 6:2

At Exodus 6:2 YHWH is spelled [yod-shewa-he-waw-qamets-he]

If the Masoretes had placed a silent shewa under the first he, 
the spelling would have  been [yod-shewa-he-shewa-waw-qamets-he] ,
and it would appear to be a pronounceable Hebrew word.

But without a silent shewa under the first he,
is [yod-shewa-he-waw-qamets-he] pronounceable?
