Three by Three?
« on: January 28, 2013, 06:51:06 PM »
Just wondering what Three by Three means?

I know it has to do with the quality of the transmission. I've also heard five by five and brokeN.

Thanks

In short 5x5 means the person receving transmission is hearing it loud and clear. 3x3 would be middle of the road.
