[time-nuts] power spectrum of hard limiter output

I'm looking for a reference that gives the power spectrum of the output 
of a hard limiter (1 bit thresholder) with band limited noise and a 
single sinusoid.

At high SNR, the output of the limiter is basically a square wave at at 
the input frequency, but as the SNR decreases, it starts to act like a 
soft limiter with a gaussian characteristic, so what is the power 
spectrum of the output?
