I have received reports like 54S - but not sure if S is
acceptable in contest reporting or other computerised logging
schemes as a tone report.

Then the strongest signals I've yet heard from G4UVZ Taunton 59
SSB stronger at times than the 2m signal we also worked on CW 599.
But to give the report T9 always seems anomalous on rain scatter
in particular. I believe contacts via aurora can be suffixed A eg
59A on SSB or 599A on CW. Does anyone qualify the tone part of the
report with say R & if so is this in addition to say 599R or
59R? Or is there any point in doing it as it may be a complication
for what may already may be a weak signal exchange & why CW
was being used anyway?
