 ```I log: KW = KW K = K ATT = 100 5TT = 500 050 = 050 1K = 1K. I "expand" cut numbers and write the numbers. If someone sends "5nn", I write 599. If I hear "ATT", I'll write 100. "1oo" is written as 100. 5NN is routinely written 599. A very few zealots might give a contest signal report other than 5NN, and I usually am able to log what's sent. If I happen to slip and log 599 in those cases I don't fret long over it. But I bet it would be OK if you logged exactly what you heard. After a while you "hear" ATT as 100. The important thing it to have fun! 73 de Dick, K6KR -----Original Message----- From: cq-contest-bounces@contesting.com [mailto:cq-contest-bounces@contesting.com] On Behalf Of David Levine Sent: Saturday, February 21, 2009 3:49 AM To: 'CQ Contest' Subject: [CQ-Contest] Newbie CW logging questions I am participating (very limited) in my first CW contest this weekend. I have a couple questions on logging for the ARRL DX contest. Maybe it's as simple as "whatever they send is exactly what I log". 1) If a DX station sends "KW" as their power, I think I log KW, correct? 2) If a DX station sends "K" as their power, do I log K or KW? 3) If a DX station sends "5TT" as their power, do I log 5TT or 500? 4) Every station is of course sending 5NN as the report. Does it matter if N1MM is logging as 599 vs 5NN? I'm hoping the first 2 replies to this don't say the exact opposite of what to do. Thanks in advance for the answers.
