Subject:channel hopping for minutes interval?
Date:16:34:32 20/02/2017

here's the thing i've configured kismet to stay on channel 9 where it should not get a message from a wifi device, in order to test the hopping and dell, but the problem i'm still getting message:

16:29:44.975613 1.0 Mb/s 2452 MHz 11b -45dB signal antenna 1 0us 01:0c:cc:00:00:00 (oui Unknown) SNA > 00:0c:cc:71:70:14 (oui Unknown) STP Information, send seq 0, rcv seq 32, Flags [Final], length 1

kismet is running on a raspberry pi with a wi-fi usb dongle.

> No - normally channel hopping is several times a second, so there's nothing that logs that, it just changes the channel.
> As I work on the new datasource code in the git repo I'll consider adding some sort of feedback for very slow channel hopping, however.
