Hopefully someone can tell me what kind of signal makes this display in thirty meters. Just tuning looking for 30 meter JT signals and I see this. can't say I ever saw anything like it before. I live in a urban but mostly residential area of Chicago.
Anybody have a clue what it is? Forgot to say it's raining, steady but moderate, not heavy.

Need a better screen shot but looks a lot like the Over The Horizon Radar I see all the time

I can't tell a lot from the included detail.
If you speed up the waterfall rate to 65-75 and do a complete screenshot of the SSDR window, including the panadapter and waterfall, it would give us more data.  You might also zoom out and give us a picture with about 100 kHz width, too.
