Looks like Mosley is still in the antenna biz in a big way:


They may be able to help you out,

Subject: [CQ-Contest] Antenna question

I have had an 8 element 10 meter beam on a 40' boom - unopened for several
years.  The outside of the 
shipping tube was marked "Moseley" .  Yesterday I finally unpacked the
antenna since the cardboard
tube was soaking wet after all the rain we've had here in Virginia and found
the instruction manual but
it didn't identify the manufacturer - only the date February 1976 - it's
been around awhile - I bought it from
a SK estate.
Anyway, today I did a search on Google using the model number M108C and
found that these antennas
are still being sold by a company called MACO which builds CB antennas!  Did
they buy the design
for these yagis from Moseley?  Does anyone know?
The antenna appears to be high quaility - all the hardware and tubing is
like new even after 35 years in
a the cardboard container and under very humid conditions here in VA for
some period of time.  The manual
shows element lengths from 26 to 30 MHZ so it was certainly built to operate
on CB frequencies.  I'm sure
with some modeling it will be a very good antenna since everything is
totally adjustable.
Anyway, just curious about any connection between Moseley and the new
