[CQ-Contest] Mobile operation uploads to LOTW

I'm curious, what the standard, if any, or preferred method of uploading logs to LoTW is for mobile operations?

When I've done these in the past, I did NOT include /m or /county, just N2WN by county.

LoTW sees N2WN/m as a unique call compared to N2WN or N2WN/GRA or N2WN/qrp or /p...

This means, if the station working me did not upload their lg the same as I uploaded mine, there isn't a valid record for either of us.

This might explain lower numbers or "why don't you use LoTW?" comments.

A standard seems like the way to go, but not sure there is one.
