Others have covered CW activity, I use it as backup when everything else is dead. 
Do not let 10 watts fool you. I run SSB 5 watts in all the VHF contests. Location is key find a hill and go for it. I worked all of new england and south west on 2, 6, 220, and 432 with 5 watts, but I was at 6000'. I use 5 watts all the time from QTH on all bands and have lots of success. 820' elevation, key is to listen for openings, 50.125 on in my shack all the time.
