Hi, I meant wpa_supplicant on a station. I wasn't sure wpa_supplicant could
handle the case when an AP switches channel due to radar detection. There
should be a channel switch announcement from the AP. Perhaps it is handled
by the wi-fi card? Anyway I tested doing channel switching and it seems to
be working so I think this answered my question.
