Varying the rf gain shouldn't vary the strength of the signal received.  I 
recall an alignment procedure for the s meter where a 50 microvolt signal 
applied to the receivers input would produce an s9 meter reading (RF gain 
control at max). There are some receivers that do not even have an RF gain 
conrol.  Most receivers do however have an s-meter.  I would suppose that a 
receiver equipped with an s-meter, but no RF gain control would still prove 
a problem for many on this list!!
