Not quite right.  The transmitters are located at a distance, particularly
on HF, to permit full duplex operation.  The receivers are usually located
at the control point, on base.

Bob's right about the receivers.  They're good ones and designed to do the
job, that is, receive only what is intended and reject all other off tune
signals.
