Smooth trace, smooth spectrum - strange

This signal certainly does not come from lightning. This is a disturbance from a nearby electrical appliance. Do these types of signals appear in series a dozen or several dozen signals per seconds?
Besides, your stations capture extremely a lot of bad signals and only a small percentage of them really are from lightning.
I suggest to significantly reduce the gain - 2-3 times. The amount of sending signals to the server should not exceed 20,000 per hour during a strong storm and 3,000 per hour during a period of low storm activity. You will see that the amount of correct detected signals from the lightning does not decrease significantly.
