Ok, I will try with an attenuator, but I suppose I can work too(while I
an attenuator) with two antennas setting the proper gain for each one,
now I have the next question: Independently if I work with attenuator or
antennas, why the gain affects the spectrum and shape of the received

Without seeing the details, I can’t comment in detail.
But as you increase the RX gain, more of the weaker components of the
signal start to rise above the noise floor of your configuration, so you
see them. As you increase gain further, depending on the strength of
the TX signal, you end up with the amplifier operating in a non-linear
thus distorting the signal.
