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.
