You're using an old version (upgrade to the latest release), however assuming your atheros device supports 11a (not a given) then packets will be captured as normal, also assuming your APs are on a channel in your hopping list.

There is no voodoo to capturing 11a packets - set the channel, and if there is traffic, packets.
