Mobile DX expiditions

I have homemade a car roof mounting system, that consist of a swingable tube that is 50mm thick.
this tube is 2meter long, inside this tube is a 4 meter 38mm tube mounted.
When I'm at my DX location, the two iron tubes goes out in full length, about 5meters.
At the top a full size quarterwave antenna for the 40meter band is mounted !, this antenne is almost 10meters long !!
The car roof is about 1.4 meter height, so the top of the antenns is about 16.4 meters !!
The antenna has also four full size radials (10meter long) they also work as barduns to hold and support the antenna,
they are mounted directly in the ground with 4 metal sticks
