A friend of mine who was active during the "gooneybox" era on 6 and 2m said 
that if you had a real strong signal into someone's receiver, it would cause 
the tuning eye tube to go dark. The predecessor of "S meters". If you were 
real strong, the receiving station would say," You're closing the eye over 
here". Kind of like S9 plus a bunch.
