Hi folks,

Just received a new TA-33M with TAC-33K feed. 

I've never seen a driven element feed like this one.  Its a clever 
implementation. Where the two ends of the driven element converge at the 
boom a hollow insulated coupling is provided so that the two sections 
slip into the insulator, making the connection water resistent and 
eliminating the need to split the feed-line coax wand weather proof the 
coax shield, etc. In the middle of the insulator is an SO-239 
connection. Inside the insulator there are two pieces of coax (I'm 
guessing RG8) center conductor (shield removed but insulation remaining 
with the ends swrink wrapped) that are simply slid inside each end of 
the driven element.  That is it.  No direct connection to the elements. 
I'm guessing this is Mosley's version of a "BETA" matching system.

Any thoughts on this technique or clarification as to whether this is 
indeed a "BETA" match?
