CL was the "CLassic" feed system.  It consisted of two pieces of coax with
the braid removed, each piece inserted inside one half of the driven
element.  One piece of the coax was connected to the feed coax braid and
the other to the center conductor.  In other words the RF was capacitive
coupled to the driven element.  The beam is one of the better Mosley
performers with relative wide spacing (18 foot boom) for a 3 element
tribander.  The Classic feed system has at least one downside in that some
of the antenna analysers out there don't generate enough signal to
correctly couple to the driven element and will often give erroneous
readings (but not necessarily on all bands which can really have you
chasing your tail).

TA designator meant, among other things, split coax feed directly to two
halves of the driven el.
CL meant a different feed system.
