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.
