> Channels overlap. The closer you are to a transmitter the more overlap you'll see. You're probably just getting either bleedover from overlap, or if you're running wpa_supplicant in the background when it does a scan it will change channels and you'll see other channel traffic.

Thanks, I think it is the bleedover.
