Re: receiver overload

That's always a possibility.

Some tuners also can act as low-pass filters or even as a parallel tuned
circuit, i.e. a bandpass filter. If the dominating noise contribution
is from a frequency-limited source such as a man-made source both could
work to lower the noise in the receiver. But I don't think this happens
very often.

I heard that when you use an antenna tuner you actually raise the
noise floor. 🤷🏻‍♂️I understand why but never heard it getting rid of
noise. Maybe the tuner provided a better ground then what you had so
yea maybe it made it seem like it reduced noise if your antenna
system is inadequate.
