I'm not new to Amateur Radio... but am new to HF. I'm currently learning Morse Code and plan to order the new QRP Labs QCX+ kit and matching 50W PA.

But which band to choose?

My default choice is 40m because I know there are some slow Morse stations there but what would you suggest please?

Hello,

40m is a great choice, and as your only band, go for it!
I do like 30m but because there are no contests there and no voice ops, and also because I already have a bunch of 40m radios...

You can't go wrong starting on 40m. Most slow speed CW is between 7.050 and 7.060 or above 7.110 MHz.
