Your antenna is optimized for 50km  and up, so is filters and the detection system.
At 0 - 10km, you see hundreds of small discharges in clouds and preloads - for your receiver it is seen as noise.

I am interested in your comment about 'small discharges in clouds'. Some time ago I was out walking when it was clear that a storm was beginning to form more or less overhead. At this time I heard a few faint rumbles of thunder which I am sure were overhead. I have never heard this since. I emailed the Met Office (in the UK) about this but received no reply. Could this be me hearing the result of these small discharges?
