Today I made my first SOTA CW activation on LZ/PS-006. It was not planned to be CW, but have forgotten the power supply for the IC-705 and I had only the MTR-5B as a backup rig.
The weather was not, but the activation was successful.
I would like to thank you for your patience and for the nice QSOs.

Nice going !!! And the weather looks like fun. It looks like what in Colorado on “14-ers” we call, the inside of a ping-pong ball - fred kt5x
Congrats on your first CW activation! I’ve heard from a few people their first CW activation wasn’t planned, but due to missing something it was the motivation to activate. (-: I still haven’t done one, but is good encouragement as I focus again on learning… 73, James WA7JNJ
Thank you! You have to try it. It is more interesting than SSB.
So a failure brought you to an important step, not so bad. Now enjoy CW on more activations.
Congratulations on the first CW Activation! Forgetting the power supply just started a new chapter in your Sota Journey I hope you enjoy it and maybe one day I will have the pleasure of a s2s or chase you.

I will really wait for this day
Congratulations! CW makes things simpler and easier.
