Indeed, it does sound like the Mosely. The 2 element 40m Mosely was a
center-loaded design which used heavy ceramic forms for the coils, covered
with a clear plexiglass cover. Black plastic caps covered each end of the
coil. The elements were mounted on an aluminum support with black phenolic
standoffs about 2 inches long, 6 per element as I recall.
