I have RFI on 80, 40 and 30M each night from sunset to sunrise every day. Can I send a video of my IC-7300 panadapter as evidence?

It's ONLY from sunset to sunrise.

I’ll try to describe it…the signal is every 100 Hz, the frequency varies in what appears to be a sin fx or sawtooth over about 50 Hz…it’s periodicity is 2 Hz. So, on the waterfall, there are multiple zigzag patterns that repeat every 100 Hz. It begins to diminish a bit above 8 8 KHz and below 6.7 KHz. It’s still there on 80M and 30M but much less intense.
Any help appreciated.

These days the only practical way to identify most RFI sources is to first locate it first. There are just too many electronic and electrical devices to put together a database of noises.
