  1. When you report a radio amateur QSOs, you should send an SWL card to the radio amateur operator with the following information:

    QSO with:
    Signal report: R/S

    R = Readability (1-5)
    S = Signal from the S meter (1-9)

    9 is equal to S9 or stronger signal.

    As well as you may mention your equipment and your QTH locator.
