I'm a full time maritime mobile and currently operating from Mexico.

Can stations work me as a valid DX entity?

Am I operating as-if I am a DX entity as well, or am I basically a contact for others?

I've been creating new LOTW location entries for each anchorage\city we go to. Is that the right way to go and how will that affect me later when I'm adding up contacts for the bigger awards.

Thanks!

Rules for DXCC below:

8. All stations contacted must be "land stations." Contacts with ships and boats, anchored or underway, and airborne aircraft, cannot be counted. For the purposes of this award, remote control operating points must also be land based. Exception: Permanently docked exhibition ships, such as the Queen Mary and other historic ships will be considered land based.

Looking at the above, I don't think you'll count for DXCC but a nice one to get in the log nevertheless.

You could set up onshore as a portable station but I imagine time in Port won't allow this.
