Hi Seth,

it seems, that EU domain is advertised by APs/Routers here in Europe.
I know, that many clients use EU domain (at least internally in
firmware) as well.
I would like to add it and use it along with setting for individual EU
In attachment you can see an example of a wi-fi scan in apartment-house
in Vienna (Austria).

Thanks and best regards,
