The equality φ= γ between the exponent φ, which describes crossover from zero- to finite-random-field critical behaviour, and the order parameter susceptibility exponent γ, is shown to be replaced by φ= γ when the random exchange dominates. Rough renormalization group estimates yield φ= γ = 1.1 for three-dimensional random Ising models. The implications to experiments on dilute antiferromagnets in uniform fields are discussed. Similarly to spin glasses, the nonlinear susceptibility of the latter is shown to diverge as (T— TN)-0.7.
