However, the rules do not specifically limit you to only one signal on the

To quote:

"1. Single Transmitter (MS): Only one transmitter and one band permitted
any 10-minute period, defined as starting with the first logged QSO on a
Exception: One-and only one-other band may be used during any 10-minute
if-and only if-the station worked is a new multiplier. Logs found in
violation of the 10-minute rule will automatically be reclassified as

Read carefully, it says you have one transmitter operating under the
10-minute rule for band changes.  Then you can have another band
(transmitter) that can work multipliers that has its own 10-minute rule.
Nothing about only one transmitted signal between the two.

While it could be worded much clearer, all of the CQ multi-single operations
I have participated in have had two transmitters (sometimes transmitting at
the same time).
