System BLUE / capability to handle external RF fields

As bonzo said; saturation is leading to intermodulation, which probably would result in the station going into interference mode.
But this isn't a problem.

Small loop antennas are probabably less sensitive to HF-Fields, since they are from an e-field point of view a short-circuit. But near-fields are difficult to foresee, so there will be no other way as trying.
I had no problems with 100W in 20m distance at 14MHz. The bigger problem was interference from the switching power supply of the transceiver.
Stations: 233
