on the 5 is talking about the 5 point star. It is used by gangs named the Vice Lords and Bloods. These two gangs worship the 5 point star. So indtead of sayin on my momma, they say on the 5.

Respective rating used to report ballpark signal strength and clarity of a transmission. So a 5 by 1 means a strong signal is present, but what is saying cannot be understood. 1 by 5 means you can understand them, but a signal is barely coming in. 5 by 5 is ideal for both counts.

Can also be used nowadays to mean one is doing well.
Ex. A) – command to alpha2IC, do you read?
-command this is alpha2IC, I got you 5 by 5.

b) How’s it going?
I’m 5 by 5.

A shortened version of the drinking term "5 shots in 5 minutes". Can also be converted to 6 in 6, 7 in 7, or if you're trying to die, 10 in 10.

This is an old aeronautical radio term. Radio signal strength and clarity were measured on a scale of 1 to 5. Today the term "Loud and Clear" is preferred to "5 by 5".

In slang use "5 by 5" means things are well, good, or as expected.
