Help To ID Network

I have some SDR equipment and I've previously tracked some odd broadcasts coming in between 15-30 degrees above the horizon from the same general direction (towards the Mediterranean) on multiple occasions.  I see some rain fade on it sometimes, but its spread spectrum and unlike anything I've seen before.  Given the nature of the signal, I would estimate that this satellite is below 3000Km and part of a network designed to provide near complete coverage of the globe employing a steerable platform.

Has anyone tracked, or spotted a pattern, in unidentified or non-publicly identified satellites that appear to move in concert, even loosely, to provide consistent coverage and have regular locations in the sky???

Given the position, relative to where I am, it does not appear to be in a polar orbit but don't rule it out.
