It is a baseband video signal, not an RF (ie channel 3 or 4) signal.
The easiest way to see it on a TV without a video input is by hooking
it up to a VCR, and the VCR to the tv. Standalone converters are
pretty cheap, but a lot of people already have a VCR.
One reason for the jack being mono is that it can (should) be as sharp
as the RGB signal from the 23 pin jack. A composite color video
signal can't be.

Or he uses interlace with a long persistance mono monitor, or wants
SOMETHING that works while he waits for the store to get color
monitors back in stock (that happened to me).
