You might want to read a related thread from the ath9k corner in .
The tl;dr version roughly is:
* relevant change between v1.5 and later versions of EN-300.328 is the requirement
to detect shorter radar pulses of 0.5us (before: 0.8us)
* if the HW is able to handle them as is, from FW side everything should be fine
to pass a certification run
