I would definitely encourage you to get into CW. I've experimented with just about every mode out there, and CW is still my favorite. If I weren't trying to finish all-digital VUCC, I would be about 100% CW at this point. A word of caution regarding QRP: I always get a chuckle out of folks who talk about how they worked a guy in Australia on a half a watt without mentioning (a) what part of the solar cycle they were in and especially (b) what kind of antenna they were using. I would much rather have 5 watts into a high, directional, well-matched antenna than 100 watts into an attic dipole -- like mine -- tuned to get the VSWR to a manageable level. I've always said that in addition to 'QRP' there should be something like 'QBA' (for bad antenna), with special calling frequencies, etc. for people who are stuck using rain gutters, etc. instead of three element yagis at 100 feet. My feeling is that it's extremely challenging to operate both QRP and 'QBA' -- it can be done (and I do it on a regular basis), but in my experience two out of three (power, antenna, sunspots) is kind of a minimum for all but the most hardcore hams Good luck and hope to hear you on the bands!
