Debris re-entry?

Observatory location : Lamy, New Mexico (35.502387 N, -105.893908 W)

On April 19, 2016, I captured an odd, unidentified forward scatter 
reflection on my radio meteor array operating at the frequency of 54.309 
MHz LSB, which is a tv channel two pilot signal. It produced a 
dopplering radio reflection similar to a large space object** passing 
through my antenna beam. Time of the event was 2037 UT until 2051 UT. 
(2:37 pm to 2:51 pm Mountain Daylight Time). My antenna is pointing 
toward Salt Lake City, Utah so if it was space object related it would 
have been in the sky between New Mexico and Utah.

Does anyone know if there were any abnormal satellite passes or possible 
debris re-entries in this region during this period? Or anything 
anomalous up there?

I posted spectrographs here:

Thank you in advance for any replies.
