Just curious. Doesn't the ionosphere have an attenuation on 10 meters?

2315Z pass.

I could see someone in the passband, but it showed as 6 traces rather than
one.  Does that mean the transponder was overdriven with PSK?

I attempted to see if I could get through and at least see my downlink, but
no luck.  I figured even without the Doppler-compensated software, I should
see my signal..30 watts to an off-center-fed dipole at 56 feet.

Thoughts/suggestions welcome.
