I haven't found this in the FAQ; apologies if I just missed it. Because of time limitations, most of my HF fun these days is while I'm in the car, driving to and from work. I upload QSOs to LotW, of course.

I've been wondering if I should create another account for my callsign/M, for mobile contacts.

Is it likely that, when I submit QSOs to LotW, I'm missing matches because the other stations are reporting my call as AC4RD/M instead of just AC4RD? Is there a way to tell if this is happening?

Yes, I do recommend that you obtain a new certificate for AC4RD/M. You can sign the same log with AC4RD and with AC4RD/M and you will probably get more matches that way. When you ask for a certificate for the mobile call, make sure to answer Yes when TQSL prompts you to "sign the request." Then, you left click, or highlight, the AC4RD call and the resulting new AC4RD/M account will be seen in your AC4RD account.
