What do you mean "can not change". Do you get an error message? Where
does it say you have 0 dBm as the default?

I'm using fbb5c042800ec42459a5cc307dec566d8e316927 from
github.com/kvalo/ath/ (based on 3.17). I don't see the problem you
describe - I can change tx powed with, e.g. `iw wlan1 set txpower
fixed 1000`. The other end reports different signal strength values
when I change txpower. Can you re-test with latest ath10k code,
