12&3 very important. 4 as relative to surrounding area for sure, unless within 10 wavelength to water
5 don't care,
6 in db would be good, under 1,5,10,100,500,1500 works pretty well for comparing.
7 & 8 could be combined
10, 11, 12 are all good too.
13 could be for intense effort, or simply light participation. Tried hard or simply tired.
14 homebrew or commercial antenna/rig
