[CQ-Contest] Help! am I on track?? W0ZP

I found that making significant antenna improvements will open the door for
better results.  I run low power, have one tower at 80 feet with a Force 12
C31XR at 80 feet and the MAG240N at 90 feet.  On 80, I have a delta loop
hung from the tower.

Since putting up these antennas (in 2002), I found SS to be much more fun --
I can run on virtually all bands with 40 being the king.  Last year, I took
New England low power cw.  This year, I beat that score, again low power.

Oh, no so2r here, just a single Mark V with the filters and roofing filter.

Subject Arrl ss cw improvement.

I seem to be stuck in a black hole at about 950-1000 
qso per year, A plateau or hurdle, so to speak,
I am not S02r

I sometimes get bored and wish each station was 
workable once per band in SS , Wow! fresh, unworked 
stations would abound.

but, there would still be the plateau again.

So How can I go S02r on my city lot with close 
proximity antennas ??
Low power, maybe Qrp

I'm running high power so2r on a 70x100' lot, so it 
definitely can be done.
What antennas/towers/rigs/software do you have now? 
What is your budget?
