Quote from: Jane G
I'd always thought that it was a rating of both clarity and signal strength with a different rate for each, say 5x4 would mean 5 for transmission clarity and 4 for signal strength. or the other way around. But that's just an assumption.


Yep... signal strength and clarity!  I always get confused which is which, but apparently this comes from back in the day.  Not so much for aviation talk, but "Loud and Clear" is used a lot at workplaces/etc too  like some have mentioned!  Smiley
