It depends on what kind of ugly. If they are ugly in highly articulate 
ways,  it's the strongest signal. In case of a tie it's the one whose 
audio characteristics most closely match the frequency range that the 
(receiving station's) operator's ears are most sensitive to. Of course, 
if the signals are just plain ugly and distorted in ways that do not 
enhance intelligibility, the transmitting station does not get in the 
log book. This tends to keep most of them intelligible, even though they 
might not necessarily be pleasant to listen to.

But what if all the signals are ugly?
