[CQ-Contest] CW Speed

I played with my sending speed and dropped as low as 16 wpm and up to
around 24 wpm when calling CQ. I put spaces between the elements of my
call. I took the spaces out. No matter what I did, every hour of
calling CQ only produced about 6 QSO's. I felt like a frustrated bass
fisherman trying this lure and that lure and this bait and that hook,
When I'd get an answer to my CQ, I usually had to wake-up from a cat-nap
and get a repeat! (sorry)
My question is this... If I'm able to break pile-ups on 40LP, into EU and
AF, why don't I get more customers?
Am I really just generating QRM with my 100 Watts and Deltas?
I'd really appreciate feedback.
BTW, I was glad to see John, W4UE, add a prefix to the mix. I'm also
planning something like that when other KW4's join the WPX battle next
