There are 32 possible combinations of symmetry operations that define the external symmetry of crystals. These 32 possible combinations result in the 32 crystal classes. But for a radar engineer it is inevitable to associate "32" to "5 bits". I submit a tentative classification of the 32 crystal classes with a 5 bit classification, obviously with a (tentative) physical meaning of each bit. Each bit means a physical property.
