Hello Melissa. After several delays, I was able to, finally, assemble the TA54 XLN 6 with the KR-30 kit added to it. Firstly, I want to congratulate and thank the entire team at Mosley for a product of the highest quality. The workmanship and its precision is impressive. The set of instructions for, both the antenna and the kit, are simple and straightforward. I followed them, religiously, and when the TA54 was installed on the tower, the SWR readings on all bands were almost identical to those in your booklet. On April 17, with the tower fully retracted and the antenna at 25 feet above ground, my first QSO was with S01WS, on my first call in a huge pile-up. The antenna is currently at 45 feet and I have worked all continents, except Antarctica. I am very happy with the performance of the antenna on all bands (6M has been closed, lately) and I am so proud to be the owner of a Mosley Electronics product.
Please, do make sure everyone involved know how much I appreciate their work. 73.

Subject: Pro 57A still going strong 40 years!
I bought a second hand Pro 57A and removed it from a fellow moving to an HOA back in 1998 on New Years Day, in windy, Deerfield, Illinois. After getting it down, and packing it up, it was time to move it to my home QTH of Montague, Michigan. Once it was home, the following spring I did a survey of what parts might be needed to restore this huge antenna to “new condition” and Mosley Customer Service was kind, and professional in every aspect. With a few ordered parts, and some patience in tuning the array, it was ready for the tower.
It’s been up since 1999, and performs as well as it did the day I put it up! Penetrox or other conductive grease is a “must” for rebuilding these, so don’t leave it out!
The Mosley Company builds antennas for your heirs!
A very happy customer!

I have a Mosley TA-33 Sr for my primary HF antenna. I acquired this antenna used probably about 20-25 years ago and it is still going strong. In 2014, my location was experiencing a high wind event (sustained winds 40+mph). My tower blew over and it bent the reflector element on my antenna. A friend of mine gave me a replacement element which I installed and the antenna continues to perform well to this day. I did not replace the tower but did install the antenna and rotor on a heavy pipe strapped to my chimney. I have been licensed for 46 years and QRP operation has recently re-sparked my interest in HF. I am using a small 5 watt Xiegu G1M transceiver for SSB communications. With band conditions constantly improving, I am consistently receiving excellent signal reports, with some operators expressing surprise that I am only using 5 watts of power. Often times, they ask what type of antenna I am using. When I tell them the antenna is a Mosley TA33 the operators will compliment the antenna. Recently I worked a Bermuda station who had a huge pileup on his signal. I was able to break through the pileup and received a 59 signal report from the Bermuda station who also happened to be using a TA33 as well.
The Mosley TA33 is built like a tank.

Hello, I have been a user of MOSLEY Ham Radio Antennas since 1989, having a TA36 CLASSIC, one of those very large ones, which unfortunately I lost, to be prudent in a change of address.

Very happy with your contribution to my hobby to date; I already have to do some replacement of the insulators, which is normal due to the long exposure to solar irradiation conditions and the dryness with which this area of the Southern Hemisphere in CHILE has had for 13 years to date, something similar to that in the South of California, since we are in the same Parallel (33 degrees South approximately).

I want to thank all of you at Mosley for the great antennas and the help getting them set up! I have attached a picture of the top of my tower for you to see.
The 70 cm is at the top, 2 and 6 in the middle and of course the great TA-32M on the bottom. The HF is working perfectly with many overseas contacts in the last 30 hours the tower has been up.
70cm, 2 meters and 6 meters work just as well.
It took me working alone 60 days to lower the tower, replace all bolts (115 of them), build, test and mount the antennas and coax. It was a lot of work but worth it.
If you look closely at the picture, the 2 and 6 are a little offset from the other 2 antennas. My fault and it drives me crazy that I made that mistake. I will fix it in the fall. Does not affect the operation though.
All SWR readings are 1.4:1 or lower. 1.1:1 on HF.

ANOTHER TA-33 Still Going!

Subject: Mosley TA 33 M
In the late fall of 2018 I was approached by a 90 + year older woman, the widow of a ham I knew only slightly. She had a tower and antenna bracketed to her cottage and was afraid it might fall during the winter. It had been three years since her late husband had done any maintenance on it and she was sure it needed work. She just wanted it removed..
I went to look at it The tower was a 60 + foot crank up tower with a TA 33 M at the top and several smaller UHF and VHF antennae mounted on the sides of the bottom section. Her husband had homebrewed a tilt over base and wired the tower to the end of the ridge beam of the cottage at about 15 feet above ground.. There were no other lateral supports ! This was the only thing that kept it from tilting over. I immediately reinforced that attachment.
She offered me $200.00 to get rid of "that thing " I sensed that $200.00 was a big chunk of her budget so I offered to buy it for $200.00. Her eyes lit up. I then explained that I would do the job when the weather broke in the spring. Her tone changed and I sensed that the $200.00 was important to her so I said I would give her the $200.00 now, but take the tower down in the Spring when the snow melted and it was more comfortable working outside.
We had a deal.
This old lady had a following of animals she fed. A few deer, a few feral cats, and three very large turkey vultures who actually came when she called them. As I learned later, they liked to perch on the large antenna. When I lowered the antenna to the ground in the Spring, I found claw marks all over it and the end sections of the elements (stingers?) fell apart in my hands. With the help of your customer service I was able to replace the sun damaged insulators and the end pieces of the elements. The stainless steel hardware was as good as new. The traps were in good shape and the heavier gauge sections of the elements cleaned up well. The rotarator needed work. It and the tower have gone to my son. The antenna sits on top of one of my other towers and works well. My first contact with it was in eastern Europe. Thanks to you policy of being able to supply parts for even your oldest products, I have three Mosely antennae with a combined age of at least 150 years. They are all good as new.

Dear Mosley Electronics ,
When I was a Novice most of my Elmers had a 3 band beam or quad and were working lots of DX…! I just had to get one of those when I became General… and I did. The TA-33SR went to the top of my wishlist.
I bought the antenna and a 30 ft tower in 1970 and had many years of fun working DX, mainly the Pacific & Asia. When I moved from CA to NY the antenna was damaged in shipment. I needed help to identify the damaged traps and which part numbers to order.
I called Mosley and Mrs Mosley took my call ! In no time I had a list of part numbers and instructions to make the repairs and most importantly how to reassemble everything properly.
I still have the antenna it’s been in storage for awhile as it’s too large for the size of my property… maybe at my next QTH !

In addition to manufacturing a top quality product, the people at Mosley are what make the difference. When you call, a real person answers the phone. There are no phone prompts to go through and wait time is minimal. The people are nice and knowledgeable. They always seem glad to answer my questions no matter how basic they are. I don't ever feel rushed when I call. They are 100% professional. Sometimes I have had to call back more than once but they don't ever seem to mind.
Mosley is my antenna of choice which I highly recommend if quality and service are important to you.

Good morning Tim,
Some news about my TA-63N.
We reassembled the antenna yesterday and changed the cable to rg213...and the verdict is out....
It was indeed at the level of the very low loss cable that the problem was...
The swr conforms to the specifications of the antenna. 1.1/1 to 1.2/1 in the middle of each band and even 1.0/1 on the 17m and does not vary with the power increase...which is normal. What a pleasure...
Thank you very much for guiding me to the solution and your informed opinions. Without you, I would probably have gone in circles because the very low loss cable had been tested several times without showing any problem. Even with 1kW.
Probably as you suggested, a micro break in the core that causes undetectable harmonics with my measuring equipment.
Thanks again for the very good support.
I had chosen Mosley for its reputation both for the quality of its antennas and for the after sales support.
I am not disappointed...Mosley is true to its reputation.
I attach the picture of the antenna on the tower.

It had handled a lot of strong winds and rain without a hitch and has been a pleasure to use. Many Thanks to the team at Mosley, a great design and build.

Friends at Mosley....
(Please edit as necessary)
In December 2019, I bought a TA-54-XLN-6 and in the summer of 2020, I got the antenna on the air, a couple of weeks before the JARTS 2020 RTTY contest. During the contest, I was not disappointed! This antenna is a super performer, as was my previous antenna, the PRO-57A.
From my QTH in North Pole, Alaska, I worked stations in Europe and South America, as well as "the lower 48" easily.
Thank you for manufacturing a super antenna. As a side note, it is standing up well after the first couple of snow falls. The the top of the elements are covered in snow and the SWR is still great!

I purchase my Mosley MP-33-N-WARC with the 40-Meter conversion kit on May 19, 2020 and it was delivered to my Florida home on July 27, 2020 right on the schedule they gave me when I placed the order. I purchased my first Mosley antenna, a TA-33-Jr.-N-W, on March 28,2012. I am getting ready to place an order for another Mosley antenna for my summer home in Harbor Springs, MI.
I am a loyal Mosley customer because I trust them and the consistency of their products. The quality of their products is excellent. A few days ago, I completed assembling my Mosley MP-33. I dreaded opening the carton and putting it together. Much to my surprise, the assembly was so easy thanks to their color coding. I am not a very technical operator and I anticipated issues. I was worried about nothing because I had no issues. It went together so fast I couldn’t believe it.
The other thing I want to comment on is their people. When I call Mosley, I get a real person within a couple of rings. No hold time; no waiting. The Mosley team are all very nice and patient when answering my questions. I have never felt they are trying to make a quick sale. There is never any pressure or hard-sell. They want satisfied customers. And, they do not rush the call.
There are no short-cuts or cutting corners with Mosley. If you want a beam for a lifetime, Mosley is it.

I took the antenna down to access the traps, and have a closer look at the rubber boots on the top of the traps. These are all intact. I did find water coming out of the bottom of the 30 (top trap), and 17 (middle trap).
I also noted the rubber sleeve on the top part of the rubber boot wasn’t “tight”? I believe moisture was able to wick down through this into the traps. So, I “sealed” them by wrapping these boots/caps with stretchy self sealing tape, etc. After doing this, I have found that the traps aren’t as badly affected by rain or fog. Therefore doing this improved the situation.
I’m impressed with this antenna. I like its performance, and the fact it covers 40 to 10 meters easily. I was also impressed with how it was boxed for shipping, and how it was marked, labelled, etc for putting it together. Well done.

Thanks Gary for your quick reply.
I decided on the Mosley antenna because I had read many reports praising the MP33N .
This was my first choice but it was not immediately available in the U K. The fact that you have an unbroken record over many years of manufacturing first class antennas was the deciding factor in choosing Mosley.
After giving the antenna a series of tests, as I have already said, I am very pleased with its performance and together with your reply to my minor doubts reassured me that I made the right choice.
May I comment on one thing. I have been involved in amateur radio since 1951 and I find it strange having to decide on setting the optimum length of the element to middle of the top or bottom section of the band. Perhaps this due to having a wider band in the USA. I suggest that It would be helpful if antennas intended for sale in the UK had pre drilled holes for the centre band.

This is the one commercially made vertical amaterur radio antennas I can brag about.
I bought my RV-4C from a local ham. I don't know its age. I do know construction is excellent. Compared to the other brands this is not the Cadillac, but it is the Roll Royce or Mercedes Benz.
I live in an antenna restricted area. This antenna fits the requirement of being easy to deploy, and it works great even at this low point of the sunspot cycle.
2 years ago I used a competitor's antenna for Field Day. It took more work to put up and resonate, even though I had it up previously. It also did not work as well as the RV-4C.
This year I used an RV-4C. Quickly assembled and raised on one of my speaker stands. I deployed 4 counterpoise radials as stated in the manual. I only operated QRP and had more contacts than in 2019 running 100W.
I've since used it at night and on week ends (times when I don't need approval for a portable antenna). In the short time I have it up I have already worked 30 states and 18 countries since Field day.
Pending approval I hope to install the RV-4C behind the house. Until then I'll use it portable.
I confidently recommend this antenna to others due to its high quality and excellent performance.

Subject: Comments about Mosley and Customer Service
To: Fellow Hams
I just hung up the phone from talking with Chad at Mosley Electronics about obtaining parts for my old Mosley TA-33 jr. beam that has been in storage for over 40 years. Sort of a “barn find” type thing. It was missing several hardware pieces and needed new screws, bolts, brackets, caps, etc. Chad was very helpful and patient with me as we went over my parts lists and made sure I was ordering the exact correct parts. I felt like I was talking with a buddy from down the street, not a "corporation" person.
I plan to get this antenna in good shape in time for Field Day for our local club, then make it available for other field set-ups. This is but one of four Mosley beams I have owned over the past 56 years. I currently have a Classic 33 that has been up for 35 years and has gone through a major ice storm that caused the elements to droop severely and several severe mid-west winters. That antenna has not been down since I first put it up and it still looks and works as good as new. The elements are not bent, or slewed out of alignment.
Here is what I can tell you about Mosley Electronics:
1. They are an American company and self-owned. There is not "parent company". They call their own shots. As a result, they are not pressured to compromise quality for the sake of shaking out more profit.
2. As nice and helpful as they are, you probably won't have the opportunity to talk with their customer service / parts dept. people because things just don't go wrong with these antennas. Oh, if your tower blows over and damages your antenna or, if like me, you put it away for years and then can't find all the parts when it is time to put it back together, then you may need to give them a call. How many things do you have that you can still get parts for, from the original manufacturer, 30-40 years after you bought it!
Hint: If you see a used Mosley antenna for sale at a hamfest flea market, even if it is missing some parts, not to worry. You can get the parts needed to get it back working like new. Don't miss an opportunity for a bargain.
3. When they say these beam antennas are easy to put together, they are not kidding. You don't have to do any tuning or complex assembly of parasitic elements, etc. The elements and traps have color codes that tell you what fits with what. If the color codes have worn off, you can figure out what-is-what by simply looking at the measurements in the instruction manual (available online if you buy a used one without the assembly pamphlet).
4. Unless you like pulling your beams down to the ground every two or three years to fix or adjust things, then these Mosley beams are the way to go. Very trouble free.
5. Pricing: They may not be the cheapest antennas on the market, but keep in mind they are very high quality and, most likely, you are not going to have to spend a penny on repairs or take it down for adjustments for, ...well, I don't know how many years. I am over 35 years with my CL-33 and still going. I am guessing my coax will go bad before the antenna does. Remember when you bought something "Made in USA" and you knew it was made with the best materials and craftsmanship available anywhere in the world and built to last? Well, Mosley still holds those kind of American values.
I don't know anyone at Mosley and this was the first time I had a need to call them. So, this is an honest assessment of the company. 5-stars !

Tim, you can use this "mash note" in your advertising!
I have owned two Mosley antennas in my ham career. I got the first one, a 10 year old TA36 as payment for a debt & bought the 40M traps, etc. before I put it up. That was 1968, It served me well until 1994 when like a @#$%^& fool, I sold it for $250 because I just knew I would never have another tower.
Lo and behold, I bought this QTH in 2002 and some years later I put up a tower. I bought a new-in-the box TA33MW for $200 from a guy who was getting a divorce & needed untraceable cash. I then bought the 40KR tips at market price & put the whole shebang complete with a HB 6M yagi and an 18 el. 2M yagi.
We had a storm come through which slightly bent my HBDX40 tower.

I have been a ham for 58 years. I started with Mosley in 1970 with TA 33sr. In 1978 I upgraded to the TA 36 with 40 meter attachment after selling the 33.
Both antennas worked flawlessly. I just took my 50 ft tower down because I am moving from NY to Florida. I have donated the TA36 to the local Scout camp for their use and Jamboree on the Air. After wiping it down it still looks new and works perfectly.
It withstood hurricanes, snow and ice storms, thousands of contacts round the world, 3 lightning strikes, and whatever else in the 42 years it was up, so far.
Thank you for making such a reliable, sturdy product. I would recommend Mosley without hesitation. Ease of construction. Very low swr. It’s has brought me some great contacts. I live on Long Island. My house elevation is 135 feet above sea level. Used the rotor plate with a 10 foot mast. The rotor is the Yeasu G-1000dxa. 450 degrees. Tower was Rohn 25G. 5 sections with the anti- rotation arms and 3 guys.
I look forward to Florida and what I can put up there.

Finally got around to assembling and mounting the Mini-32A I purchased a few months ago. Tuning was simple; nearly spot on to the suggested starting point dimensions.
SWR is great across all three bands. Even the band edges are easily matched to 1.1:1 with the FlexRadio internal tuner.

Hi all at Mosley!
I have previously been in touch with you regarding this wonderful antenna, that I inherited via a long detour from my father. It is shown here after a severe snowstorm that virtually stopped all transport in Stockholm and sorrounding areas. Naturally I wanted to check my antenna site, which I can do remotely via the security cameras with good picture quality.
The sun just broke trough the clouds and the antenna was absolutely shining from above my 50ft tower, remarkably beautiful at least to me!
The story of the antenna I sent last time is attached below for info.
Still a great antenna, I could not be happier except for maybe adding a second director, is that even possible?
And, looking at the preliminary scores, thanks to this antenna I will, for the second consecutive year, become #1 Sweden in my class in the 2018 CQ WW..!
That is a dream come true and to do it twice is fantastic, I am totally over the sausage here!
Have a great week all friends at Mosley from a snowy white and beautiful Stockholm, Sweden ! :)

Subject: Pro 67B replaces TA-36
Just wanted to say Thanks... I finally got the Pro 67B up to sadly replace my much used TA-36. Same great quality, same damn flat blade screws as the TA that's been up and down at four QTH's since 1990. Everything Mosley said it would be and more with great swr across the bands
with a little tinkering.
It bothers me to see some of the reviews where Hams complain: the manual is too small, antenna is too big, there isn't a diagram separate page to tell you where to place every part and screw, ….front lobe is too wide, front to back ratio is too small..Blah, Blah... That scares many young Hams away from a great product. Sure, there are others, a little more gain (they advertise in Dbi) on 20, lighter, smaller, that fall apart with an inch of Maine coastal ice.
My advice ( as an old Marine at 70...wife says I'm just full of advice...) tell those guys to just read the manual, use it as a learning process, find an old timer that's had one, and probably still has.. ask questions, build it once right, put it up high and forget it for 20 years while you enjoy what it will do.
Still the best antenna built.

Dear good morning,
Finally the Mosley TA 53 M antenna is operational, with excellent SWR on all 5 Band, (tested up to 1.2 Kw massoma power of my Kenwood linear amplifier TL-922 with RX-TX Yaesu FT 897D and Auto Tuner LDG AT-897 Plus Dedicated to Ft-897D.
I want to congratulate Mosley and therefore all the staff for the excellent product made, as I think all the products in the catalog, thanking you again for consulting my requests technical, fast and effective even in the case of sending spare parts for the inconvenience caused by the aerial platform operator, despite the time zone.
Truly a leading company.

Subject: RE: PRO-96
I am not sure who at Mosley might be interested in this, so I decided to pick on you.
The PRO-96 beam has been atop my 72 foot crank-up tower for about two months now and has been performing excellently! I am more than pleased with the antenna. It has performed exactly as the specifications indicated it would. In fact, the SWR on all the bands is slightly better than the predicted figures of the brochures. The SWR is so good that I don’t really need to use my antenna tuner if I choose not to.
Assembly was a bit awkward only because I had to work alone until the time it was put onto the tower. Even so, it went together quite easily and with no problems other than the one mistaken measurement I made, which you helped to clarify.
My first contact with the 40 meter portion of the beam was the Japanese Research station in Antarctica. What a pleasant surprise that was with the conditions being as poor as they are at the bottom of this solar cycle. The beam has cut through pile-ups, heard signals that others don’t and looks fabulous atop the tower.
I want to thank those at Mosley who put this design together and cut the parts for it. Everything was flawless. I made the right decision when I made the purchase and have absolutely no regrets. Thank you all for a fantastic addition to my station.
Best wishes (73),
PS: I have attached a picture of the beam along with its cousin the Mosley AM-56, which is also a fabulous beam.

we had hoped for. And the Construction is Outstanding. We did have to add more tie downs then we at first though but this is not a problem. One Antenna is installed atop a 3 story building with 2 sets of tie downs. When the storm came thur here last month and winds were gusting 65 to 70 mph. the Antenna withstood it without any problems at all. Thank you for an outstanding Antenna and I hope to be ordering more sometime this Spring.

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!

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

Subject: TW-33-M & SF-402-A
Before asking my question I would like to say what an excellent antenna is
the Shorty Forty. I finally put it up at 15m and it has transformed my 40m
working. For example today I was 59+ into California at my dawn, as usual. I realize it's a reduced size antenna but the increase in performance from my previous antennas on 40m it great.
Now comes my query. I have a TW-33 as numbered above.
At present it is down. The question is: Can I run it without the extensions for 30m? I don't use 10MHz, so it will not be a great loss to me.
I realize I'll have to protect the traps. FYI I made a two-element 12m/17m beam using some Mosley traps from a 20/15/10m tribander. Of course, I had to re-tune them. It was great: until I got the TW33-M.
The TW-33 is even better. I sold my home-brew for a good price!
As I wrote above, can I leave off the extensions for 10MHz?

Hello Tim, Thank you very much for the wonderful support and techinal advices regarding my TA33 and MY144. They working very good and nice SWR. Best regards to all and to Melissa too.
All the best MOSLEY!!!!
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.

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.

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.
