Interesting point ... Right after getting the new synth for my K3, I was
copying a number of WSPR stations on 630 meters. I even got up in the
middle of the night to see if I could hear them [I couldn't] as the
computer copied them at - 10 to -15 dB SNR. At first consideration, I
don't see what effect a preamp would have had, SNR is still the same.
Related subject: An old CW RO's trick when copying a weak signal in
noise and QRM is to lay the headphones on the desk face up. I learned
this years ago on the Holy Frequency. I have no idea why it works, but
it often does. Maybe one of the acoustic experts here will explain it.

This test may be a bit out of date.
With digital modes decoding signals ~10 db below the noise these days,
one may need at least two S-units of noise.
