[VHFcontesting] LOTW and Rover Ops

During most VHF contests, I sign "Rover" on phone and KI0SK/R on CW.  I 
assume most stations log either one as KI0SK/R and had planned on 
getting a certificate for KI0SK/R.

Does LOTW require signing these contest QSO's with a separate 
certificate for KI0SK/R? Or will it match a log entry for KI0SK/R with 
a log signed by KI0SK?

If the latter, it would make this somewhat easier.  I would not need a 
separate certificate for KI0SK/R contest QSO's or KI0SK/M for working 
County Hunters while mobile.
