   I have never heard of one of my cards being rejected, and I have helped
many to VUCC by operating portable.

   Strike out your home grid, then add portable from Grid, county and state.
You should be good to go with that and you will make the card checker happy.

   On LOTW I have gotten a new certificate and attached the grid, county and
state information to the certificate for those QSOs.  Let's just hope the
League gets around to accepting LOTW for VUCC some day as they have implied
they would.

P.S. I am taking grid requests for a summer trip to my south EN01? EN02?
EN03? EN23? Something else?

If you are operating away from home and want to send out QSL cards, is it
acceptable to use your "home" card and note corrections to the location?
Can I just put "portable FM17" in the notes field?  Should I strike
through my home grid?
