My two favorite "contests" right now are SKCC and CX. In both;
seemingly accurate RSTs transferred.
When I work a CQWW or an ARRL DX from my house in Burien, WA, 90% of all
contacts are at an RST level of 339 to 459 at the max
my last DX pidition (ZK1DRA) 90% of all stations heard were 589 to 599+,
QRN zero, QRM unbelievable
But the 5NN has a long history, in 1953 at W7AW/7, some operators used to
give out "579 WASH" to all CW contacts
