All of this speculation could be solved with an easy experiment.
Have a ham across town send you a very weak signal, so weak that
you can barely hear it, with your agc off.
Have him pump up the power by a factor of 1.25 (1dB), and see
if you can tell the difference. If that doesn't work, try a
factor of 1.6 (2dB) or a factor of 2 (3dB).
We could even have a contest to see who can detect the lowest
If I were at home, I'd try it myself, but I'm in the boonies,
without a radio.
