ADC Overload

The ADC overload alert displayed in PowerSDR and KISS Konsole are to alert the user to possible "spurious signals in the bandscope".[1] They are not a warning of any danger to the receiver or the ADC - which are well protected. "The primary protection is the the clamp diode at the input connector, which hard clamps at 5 volts peak to peak".[2]
