I suppose because in many contests a signal report is part of the exchange.
I guess because most times you have to have a signal strength of 9 just
to be heard at all.
I guess real RST's should be a variance, and this would really mess
everyone up would it not, but to sent a true "R" value.
i always loved hearing the exchage,
Ur 59, i need my report,,,,,,
thanks I still need ur section ur 59.
he he he
Obviously the station is NOT a 5 on readability or why would the guy
need soo many repeats.
But wow, imagine a cw test where the R value is constantly changing?
YIKES! he he he
