4.Contest Exchange:
4.2. DX stations send signal report and power (number indicating
approximate transmitter output power).

I guess the contest rules are rocket science. Of course, any RST
exchange sent as 5NN or ENN should be so recorded :-)  Serial
numbers sent as NAT should be so recorded :-)   Power sent as K or
KW should be so recorded :-)

With a major leap of faith, since the program you use to send the
exchange automagically translates 599 1000 (in your log) to 5NN KW
when transmitting, a similar inverse logic might follow for the
program receiving the exchange?

Maybe anyone using cut numbers should be automatically
