Ummm, I don't think that is entirely accurate.  Let's say you have a 10m beacon 
but you are also on 10m working CQWW CW - those are two same mode signals using 
the same callsigns on the same band.  Totally legal (both for FCC and 'test 
rules).  I think that the FCC considers spurious signals unwanted signal 
artifacts of a single, specific transmission and not seperate transmissions 
that may be on the same band.  Another example would be a special event station 
running phone, digital and CW all with the same call on 20m at the same time - 
again totally legal.
