You can hard-code short-form reports as “5NN” or “ENN”, with serial numbers sent in full or short.
$SentRSTn$ sends 9s as Ns.
In the CW Machine, choose how to send zeroes under the config menu:
And you can elect to send or drop the leading zeroes under Serial # setup (right-click the serial number panel at the bottom of Logger32’s main window):
[Side note: contest rules may specify the minimum number of digits … but such rules are widely ignored and rarely if ever enforced].
There are config options to “Cut” 0 and/or 9 in Winkeyer too, if the Winkeyer is generating your serial numbers:
Finally, there’s the question of how to log reports and serials received: should we log “ENNTTE”, for instance, or “599 005”, or “5995” or … what? The answer depends on the contest rules and your personal preference, and that uncertainty is a factor in the contest adjudication software that may or may not understand and permit/penalize the different approaches to sending, receiving and logging.

I don't think there's an option to send A for 1. I think $sentrstn$ converts 9 to N (not T). There are options to send 0, T, or O for a zero. SeventyThree(s).
