If it's perfectly legal to operate two transmitters at the same time,
why is it called "multi-single"?

I guess I would think in the interest of clearing up double-talk, it
would be a good idea to either:

- Change the rules to allow only one transmitted signal at a time, or:

- Change the name of the category.

The latter choice probably makes more sense.
