Reciprocity with antenna Heard versus Hearing

I've got a problem: I have a heard/hearing ratio of 15-20:1. Simply, I'm just not receiving very well. I thought that going to 500 milliwatts of power on 30 meters would/might decrease my ratio but it still is high. Any ideas? I'm using a 80 meter dipole fed with ladder line on all bands. My rig is a Kenwood TS570. On 30 meters I have a noise level of S5. Thanks for reading this. (What prompted my inquiry was that there was no way that I could hear the balloon on 30 m.)I might have asked this question a couple of years ago, so excuse me if this seems redundant.
