MRLs are single track tapes. They're made with one full width track on the reel, which can be used to calibrate any size track count on a machine.
You can make a reference tape for yourself, but this is in no way to be considered a tape made by MRL.

absolutely correct.

there is some technical reason they are full-track mono, besides being able to be used on any headstack. something about crosstalk/intermodulation etc.
