I suppose because in many contests a signal report is part of the exchange.

why 599?

I guess because most times you have to have a signal strength of 9 just 
to be heard at all.

I guess real RST's should be a variance, and this would really mess 
everyone up would it not,  but to sent a true "R" value.

i always loved hearing the exchage,

Ur 59,  i need my report,,,,,,

thanks I still need ur section ur 59.

he he he

Obviously the station is NOT a 5 on readability or why would the guy 
need soo many repeats.

But wow, imagine a cw test where the R value is constantly changing?

YIKES! he he he
