Could you please check what the driver is saying about the regulatory
domain of the card? You can check this in dmesg output, e.g., like this:

$ dmesg | grep "ath:"
[   11.255148] ath: EEPROM regdomain: 0x64
[   11.255150] ath: EEPROM indicates we should expect a direct regpair
[   11.255154] ath: Country alpha2 being used: 00
[   11.255156] ath: Regpair used: 0x64
