ADC overload myths debunked

Written by a guy who ought to know — it’s an interesting and informative read:

“I’ve received some feedback that there is some confusion circulating on other ham radio reflectors regarding how analog to digital converters (ADCs) work in radio applications. Specifically, some of the comments tend to say that direct sampling ADCs just won’t work in strong signal environments so I’d like to explain why this is not factual for those who are interested. I have a few points to illustrate this”.
