Mosley Amateur antennas are pre-tuned, pre-drilled and color-coded for ease of assembly which means NO MEASURING! Hand-crafted under rigid engineering standards, Mosley antennas are constructed of highly durable drawn, aluminum tubing. All stainless steel and non-corrosive hardware insuring longer antenna life... an average of 30 years! Mosley antennas and antenna accessories are guaranteed free of defects in material and workmanship for a period of two years from the date of delivery.
Mosley invented the metal encased trap design. Don't be fooled by these "lossy" trap claims. If you want superior multi-band performance without the hassles of a multi-tower set up, take a good look at our "Trap Master" beams. For more information concerning our trap design, please see our FAQ section.

From: WA6REI Subject: PRO-67-B Friends at Mosley Electronics, WA8REI of Freeland, MI here. I've had a pro 67 B at 48 feet for nearly 6 1/2 years now. I bought it used from a silent key's estate in Atlanta, GA. I have no idea how old it is. All traps were disassembled and cleaned, as well as all tubing connections prior to installation. The tower is guyed at 25 and 46 feet by 3 massive, commercial grade guy anchors and 3/8 inch wire rope. the tower base is on a 5 x 5 foot concrete slab, 3 feet thick. i have a Yaesu GS-065 thrust bearing roughly 2 feet below the boom of the "monster Mosley" which greatly reduces the load on the rotator. The mast sits snugly inside the tower top section and is well lubricated with all-temperature grease. I have used a hy-gain ham iv rotator with absolutely no issues. i do not attempt to rotate the antenna in a windstorm! duh! In 6 1/2 years, the antenna performs like new. It has withstood 65 mph winds, rain, snow and ice storms. the 40 m. elements have a little droop, but really perform. I run only 100 watts, no amp, but bust many DX pileups. I often run 5 watts QRP in contests or sprints and have many winning plaques and certificates. The antenna is resonant on 6 meters and performs well on that band with no dedicated elements.
I am glad to see Mosley ads in QST after a long hiatus. Young hams know nothing of Mosley quality antennas UNLESS THEY ARE TOLD THROUGH ADS OR HAMS WHO OWN THEM. I'm sure many old timers like me have heard of the TA-33 or TA-33 JR just by word of mouth from AM, SSB or CW operators! "HERE'S THE ORIGINAL! NONE BETTER HAS EVER BEEN MADE!" I'll vouch for that! I'd take a Mosley over a Steppir [with more wind load] any day. Thanks to all employees for designing and making an excellent product. KEN LOUKS, WA8REI FREELAND, MICHIGAN U.S.A.
From: Isaac 4X6YY Subject: TA-63-N To mosley company: on 10-28-2013 I bought a TA63N antenna very good antenna. I am very happy with its performance and durability. 4X6YY
From: Tony Subject: MINI-33-AW Hello, Just thought I would share a couple of my antenna install pictures. The antenna is performing great and the SWR is very acceptable on all bands (see SWR report). I did do some tube trimming (per your instruction manual) to get it where I wanted it. This antenna replaced a Alpha Delta DX-CC and clearly out performs the dipole. However, I lost 40m and 80m which I will replace with a home-brew dipole. Running barefoot with my Flex 6600 I have QSO’s from all over Europe on phone with 20m. I can hear better and am heard better with this antenna and look forward to getting a 500/600 watt linear. The antenna is mounted on a Rohn 36’ push up mast which is attached to my back landing structure with very substaintial home brew stainless steel mounts. The rotator is mounted at the base (which is elevated off the ground about 4 feet) to reduce weight and wind profile and the mast projects through a thrust bearing on another stainless steel bracket. I have six guy lines supporting the mast and it has done very well with high winds that we often get on the island. The antenna therefore about 40’ off the ground. My other choice was a Hex Beam. However, it is 20’ in diameter and I would not have been able to raise and lower the antenna because my mast is only about 3.5’ away from the roof. The beam, on the other hand, will slide right up and down when I bring it parallel to the roof line! The Hex Beam is also heavy and has a much bigger wind profile. My QTH is on Tybee Island, GA which is a barrier island off the coast of Savannah. My lot is small here and I only have about 15’ between my property and my neighbors on three sides. We also have a height limitations on the island. So, the Mini-33 is a great solution for me. Feel free to share my pictures. 73 Tony Abruzzio W4TYB
From: Eric Subject: TA-34-XL WARC Hello, Just wanted to say thanks for making a great product. My TA-34-XL WARC was purchased in mid 1991 and has been relocated once from Farmington Hills, Mi. and moved to New Baltimore, MI. (60 miles) where it still is going strong. Best Regards, Eric Styles KD8BNB

From: Bill AC0E Subject: PRO-67-B Seeing the many comments on your web site figure I would send mine to you. I currently have a Pro-67B, V1.6 S/N 563607, installed fall October 1994. It has been up since then working great all these years. I has survived ice storms and wind storms. One of the ice storms the chuck of ice that came off were ¾” thick. Most other beam antennas in the area damaged and in many cases the antenna and tower came crashing to the ground under the extra weight. The Mosley antennas in the area all survived.
Since my first beam antenna purchase used in the early 1970’s I’ve always owned Mosley. The first was a TA-33. This one the tower came down when a tree blew into during a wind storm. Took advantage of the damage and tore one of the traps apart and the trap of a competitors product. The quality of your traps you talk about on your web site is real. We also compared the tubing between brands and again your tubing was much better quality.
My primary interest in ham radio is HF contesting. I have finished very well in many contests using this contest, including finishing first in the US and Canada in the ARRL DX SSB contest in 2000 from the Black Hole in Minnesota. I am able to easily break many pile-ups using only 100 watts. More important in contests I am able to hold run frequencies for many hours. People comment all the time to how load I sound.
Great antenna and great company. When it comes time to replace it will be another Mosley. AC0W
From: Bill W6ST Subject: TA-53-M modified to TA-63-N I recently bought a TA53 used from an estate. The paper work included showed the purchase order dated 1995. The antenna looked in really great shape for its age. It came apart very easily for transportation.
I decided to upgrade the antenna to a TA-63N. The directions were very clear and went together as it should. Its mount atop a 55 ft. crank up tower.
I get great reports on all bands 20-6, and no tuner is required. Thanks again for a great product. W6ST
From: Mark Munroe Subject: Mini 32 AW Storm Survivor Dear Mosley…. Sunday night, Nov. 5, our neighborhood in Boardman, Ohio experienced considerable damage due to high winds, possibly due to a “microburst”. Attached are 2 pictures of my backyard showing damage to my rear deck and downed trees, with my Mosley Mini 32 AW on its mast with no damage. It’s a neat little antenna. Mark Munroe WA8ZIP
From: Yakov RC8SC Subject: TA-33-JR-N Good morning! Thanks for your nice antenna! Have finished the mounting process a week ago, and it works great! Good luck! 73! RC8SC
From: Bill And Jane Ferry Subject: Re: My TA33 I purchased this TA33 antenna new from you in 1972. It has been up on my tower all those years with the exception of two QTH moves where it was down for about 6 months.
It's been the best money I ever spent in Ham Radio bar none! The only parts changed was 10 years ago I changed the drive element insulators. Thank you, One Happy Owner, Bill Ferry K1BZM
From: David VK7YUM Hi. Just a short note to say a HUGE “thank you”! Parts arrived by mail today J Not a bad effort considering I ordered parts for my rotator from Sydney, New South Wales, on the same day and they haven’t arrived yet L Again, thank you very much - I’ll be telling everyone about your fantastic service.
From: Jeffrey W4/TI2JCC Subject: HURRICANE IRMA ANTENNA REPORT Gentlemen, I would like to report to you that one of your TA-54XL antennas that I installed a couple of years ago on a self supported tower at a 80 ft level in Miami survived perfectly with no damage whatsoever. The wind at this location was in excess of 100 MPH that toppled 2 large trees on the property. I have owned Mosley antennas for 40 years and I can say that they are a great product that will survive the harshest conditions. Congratulations on a great product.
From: Bill AE3J Subject: DI-6 My DI-6 has performed well over the thirty eight years that I have used it. The antenna has been in continuous service moving to different station locations as well as portable use. I take it down and disassemble it for cleaning and inspection periodically. Other manufacturers do not make products with the quality that I have found in the Mosley antennas that I have used over the years. I also have a 1977 TA-33 in continuous service it also receives periodic servicing and it just keeps working. In 1979, I purchased a Mosley four band trap vertical for portable and field day use. This antenna is still in daily use by a ham in western NY state.
From: Harry W3WKX Subject: TA 33 My TA 33 has been up in air for 37 years and never needs maintenance !!!!
From: Denis VE2NY Subject: TA-33-JNW I just finish my Antenna set-up and I am very pleased with my Mosley TA-33 JRNW
From: Stewart N1NOL Subject: A-503 Hi guys, I am an avid 50 mhz operator with a very very limited budget I have a 503-S as my primary antenna. The antenna has been up over 20 years and it is like new, works like new too.
From: Lem KH6LEM Subject: TA-33 I dont know how far your records go back but in 1963 I bought a Mosley TA33 new from you for $ 99.99. The antenna was used until last year by another ham in Hawaii.
From: Ghassan OD5YA Subject: PRO-67-B Dear Sales dept. First allow me to relate to you a small piece of history. In 1994, I was living in Colombia, and I purchased a Mosley 67B with a 40 mts add in kit, that was in stalled in Pereira, at 1600mts of altitude. It survived 2 7richter+ earthquakes and several hurricane strength sheer wind of the tropics. NEVER EVER in my 40 years of radio ham have I used a better and more rugged antenna. I was operating as HK6SQQ at the time. Now, I am relocated to Beirut Lebanon, operating as OD5YA, and I wish to purchase a small antenna because of local urban regulations and reduced space. Once again I thank you for your great product and I wish you attend to my query.
From: Kenney NQ3F Subject: SF-402-A Hey guys I have the Moseley sf 402-a and it is a good antenna held up in some fierce winds and works as advertised. Thanks for making the shorty forty have enjoyed it for about a year!!!
From: W3WKX Subject: TA33 up 37 years My TA33 has been up in air for 37 years and still going strong. I never had any problem with it at all. It never had to be taken down for service. Before that, I had TA 33 JR for about 25 years and never had problem. W3WKX
From: Dave K7YDZ Subject: antenna satisfaction I have been a ham for 49years and I have used Mosley beams for 47 years. My first was a TA-33 and my newest one is a TA-53-M and they have all worked extremely well and it doesn't seem to make any difference about how much power I run. I always get great signal reports. My TA-33 was sold to another ham and I absoluyely loved it and my TA53-M I love also and I have had it for 16 years and it works just as well as it did brand new. Thanks for such great products.
From: Ken WA8REI Subject: PRO 67 B Sirs: I put up a used PRO 67 B in January 2012. In a nutshell: it honks! I operate a lot of QRP CW. I point the antenna toward Europe and have worked several 1-watt stations. The gain on receive as well as transmit enables me to pull in weak QRP stations. Today, I worked the A35YZ DXpedition in Tonga OFF THE BACK at 100 watts, thru a big pileup, first attempt on 17 meters CW. The SWR is less than 1.5:1 on all bands, 1:1 on 4 bands. No tuner is used on any band. Thank you for designing and making a great antenna!
