You can send whatever you like.  I suggest do NOT use anything that ends in K. 
You will get a lot of repeats by people asking what your power is because "K"
usually means "end of transmission".  1K might be logged as 1, K could sound
like no power was sent at all.  Remember, if someone logs your power
incorrectly, YOU could lose credit for the QSO as well as the other station. 
You don't want this to happen.
