Just joined the forum. Hello to all.
I'm 100% CW when working QRP.
I use a Palm Radio mini paddle (http://www.palm-radio.de/english/empaddle.html), Ft-817 and a Buddistick as my 'go kit'.

Not 100 % CW but near 90 % .... Like QRP DX´ing in CW and make the most contacts in that nice mode (also ragchews) but also a bit digitals (last QSO more than 1 year ago) and a bit SSB at 10 meters when the band is open and my monoband TRX is running  :))

I'm fairly new to cw but it's my go to mode besides the digital modes.  Digital doesn't excite me like cw does.  I honestly can't remember my last ssb contact.

Hi! all,

Believe it or not, , I've been all QRP/CW since I got my ticket 58 years ago.

I don't know if I'm the oldest woodpecker... Hi! Hi!  ;D

So much fun and relaxation!!

I use the Palm Mini Paddle, or the vibrokeyer (single lever») from Vibroplex, + a bencher paddle and an old  marine straight key (J.W.BUNNELL dating back from the WWII era.

I can't wait for the new cycle 25, it is really low to come alive...

Best to all, stay safe
See you on the bands.

Welcome all to this ancient forum and thank you for giving it life back.
I also do only CW QRP.  Yes, I own a microphone but would have a tough time finding it somewhere in the garage.
My station runs on a 100 watt solar panel with a Renogy controller into a 20 ah battery.  I'm completely independent of the A/C power.
My main rig is a TenTec Eagle that I keep at 5 watts.  My key is a Vibroplex Racer bug and the antenna is a Butternut HF6V.
I enjoy doing Parks on the Air (POTA), and for that I use a Mountain Topper MTR-5b to a home brew portable vertical (aluminum tent poles + Wolf River coil + extendable 102" whip antenna).

I'm a member of the NAQCC, which is dedicated to QRP activities, and to the CWOPS which is dedicated to CW.

73 to y'all.
