When a very dilute mixture of H$_2$S or D$_2$S in neon is codeposited at 4.3 K with a beam of neon atoms that have been excited in a microwave discharge, the infrared spectrum of the resulting solid includes absorptions contributed by the corresponding cations. These assignments are supported both by earlier gas-phase observations and by the results of density functional calculations. The possible assignment of other, less prominent product absorptions to such species as the H$_2$S anion and SH$^+$ will also be considered.
