Practical Signal Reports Ham Radio

Everyone wants to know how their signal sounds on the air and often the best way to find out is a signal report from other ham radio operators. The standard signal reporting method for amateur radio is the RST (Readability-Signal Strength-Tone) system (see below).

RST Signal Report - A good system to indicate signal quality has been around for some time. The three numbers below suggest signal quality, signal strength and tone quality. That last number is only for CW operations while the first two are used to evaluate both CW and SSB signals. During some quick contests, you will

The RST Reporting System for Ham Radio Reception Reports the rst reporting system in a nutshell! RST Reports: An RST report is a report from a receiving station on the quality and strength of the transmitted signal. Using shorthand in the form of numbers to represent the tone of a CW signal or voice transmission of a transmitting station's signal at the receiving station's location (QTH).

R-S-T system - Wikipedia Amateur radio (ham) operators may also use a signal strength of '20 to 60 over 9', or '+20 to +60 over 9.' This is in reference to a signal that exceeds S9 on a signal meter on a HF receiver. This is in reference to a signal that exceeds S9 on a signal meter on a HF receiver.

S-meter and signal strength - The S-meter is an instrument present on the majority of radio receivers that measures the strength of the signal that is being received, and uses a special unit: the S-point. S-points are often used for RST reports.

FIELD STRENGTH METER - If you have a ham radio license and a transmitter, it really helps to check if your signal is coming out of the antenna! This extremely sensitive field strength meter will show whether or not something is being transmitted and indicates any changes in power output or antenna design. It does NOT
