I think that an actual RST report is pretty much useless as RST is
simply an opinion at best.
What may be useful is if logging software (voluntarily) records "S"
meter readings and this was kept in a database somewhere (with NO
bearing on contest results). And again that would only be useful if
there was an actual standard for "S" meter readings. But this could be
compensated for somewhat by having a database of rigs with "S" meter
readings matched to an actual standard unit such as microvolts.
