You're right signal reports are subjective to a degree.  If there are no
true or false then why do we give signal reports out at all?  What is
the point?
A 59 report, with or without a S meter, is supposed to mean the signal
is perfectly readable and extremely strong.
Refer to the chart:  http://www.radioing.com/hamstart/rst.html

But since signal reports are purely subjective, how
can anyone say that one is false?  There is no true or
false when it comes to signal reports.
