This is like saying that my two element five band quad is a multi-mono band 
quad because it has separate feeds for each driven loop. Me thinks someone 
is trying to change definitions on us.

It appears to me that this thing they call a "multi-mono band yagi" is 
nothing more than a multi band yagi with separate feeds for each driven 
element. There is nothing mono band about the antenna since more than one 
driven element exists on the boom. Hmmm! "A multi band yagi with individual 
feeds for each band." I guess some marketing guy tried to reduce the number 
of words so he came up with the confusing "multi-mono band yagi". John/K4WJ
