Simply log what they send. K = 1000 so does KW

K and KW seem to be accepted.  Other cut numbers need to be converted to

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.
