System BLUE / capability to handle external RF fields

Well, that is not exactly what I wanted to say. Intermodulation happens already below the saturation level. It can produce in-band products from two or more out-of-band signals. And once they are in band they can not be eliminated by filters.

So filters should be appear as early as possible in the signal chain.

BTW: Another issue with the strong field is that it could ecxite a common mode signal in the cables from the antenna probes. Thus the signal(s) is/are not picked up by the antenna itself but by the aerial cabling. Especially if dimensions are multiples of quarter lambdas. Good grounding (= creating a RF reference plane) is crucial.
