I suppose one could, though the resistor is usually in some other part of 
the circuit.
If I had that problem (I don't), I'd use a wavetrap set to notch out the 
strongest local signal.

The 398's FM performance isn't its strong point;  while I've worked plenty 
of tropo, and  e-skip (from Murfreesboro, TN once.) with it, you can't 
receive first adjacent stations at all and second-adjacents only with some 

If I had a *good* stereo tuner (I do not), it would probably be better than 
the 398.

Take care,
