Does anyone know the REAL meaning of QSS? I see a lot of websites that list it as referring to what frequency to use. However, I have hundreds of QSL cards from the 1920's (http://picasaweb.google.com/RadioW6ANF) that would say otherwise.
Almost every card has QSS listed as part of the signal report. It was typically described as nil, slight, some, bad, etc. One QSL had a box to describe the "Character" and it was described as "some QSS."
So, what do you think? I thought maybe it refered to "static" or maybe had something to do with the quality of a spark gap signal as they were licensed to use them back then.
Anyone know? I've attached a couple of sample cards here...
