Welcome aboard,and congrats on getting the full licence.
I’m an occasional cw activator, and agree with all comments above. One thing I’d add - once you have alerted on SOTAWatch, there is an automatic spotter linked to the RBN system. So, make sure you send “cq cq sota de m0mmu” or something very similar at least once at the start of your activation, and there is a good chance that your call will be recognised and a spot generated.
There is a lot of detailed info on how this works already on the Reflector, so I won’t repeat it all, but the search facility is very good, as others have mentioned.
Have fun, and keep safe,
