That makes me think here,
R= Readability
S= Strength
T= Tone

Readability is the overall well readability with everything taken into account. Strength, QRM, QRN, etc.
Strength is well strength
Tone is something you do not hear far from a 9 any more

Now onto SSB

Readability and Strength.
R= same as on CW everything taken into account for.
S= Strength.

Why did they not include the equivalent of the CW "T" but for phone like say your RSQ is... "Q" being audio quality.

There are many many stations during a contest that a true RSQ repiort would be 395

Plenty strong, but readability sucks because the "Q" is soo bad because the audio is sooo bad

Why dis they not include a quality level like they did for CW when using phone?

The other signal for CW is 575 ...readable perfect, strength above normal,
and signal quality punk.
