According to this site you are being heard by monitoring stations.

I get an answer to a cq maybe 1 in 10. I think that's just the way it is in 6 land. I can see midwest stations chattering away with each other.
When I DO get an answer my signal reports are good. I often work into the midwest putting 30 watts out of my atas-120 antenna on my honda]s bumper.
Listen to NPR and be patient.
PS: Be sure your ALC is just peeking out @ the minimum when you xmit. Nobody answers a dirty signal.
