Think about what you are saying.  S meter reading of antenna input signal 
strength?  Of what frequency?  Of what signal?  All frequencies are
present there.  You have a particular RF frequency only after mixers.  There is 
no way you do not involve circuitry, amplifiers, gain, etc.  

I wish s meters had never been invented.  The numbers off of them are worthless 
other than being a RELATIVE comparative reading.

Who believes it when they get a 20 over in Lebanon? 

I put as much faith in that as when I get a 599 from a DXpedition.
