For data integrity reasons, I strongly suggest you obtain a LoTW
certificate for C6AQD/MM with DXCC = 0. Otherwise QSOs you make will
be credited as being from the Bahamas.

In addition, with LoTW's verification procedures, any QSOs you make
from grids which are not within the geographical territory of the
Bahamas will not be able to be credited to other user's VUCC accounts.
