In telecommunication, desensitation is the reduction of desired signal gain as a result of receiver reaction to an undesired signal[?].

The gain reduction is generally due to overload of some portion of the receiver (e.g. , the AGC circuitry) resulting in desired signal suppression because the receiver will no longer respond linearly to incremental changes in input voltage.
