I'm setting 43362 in monitor mode to do cooee setup. If switch channel in monitor mode, the power consumption increase about 200mA. Did you test the power consumption when switch channel in monitor mode? Because switch channel don't transmit any wifi packets, why power increase so much? Is this a bug? Thanks!
During channel change the radio has to calibrate itself. Thus, the momentary incresase in power. We need to do calibrations, so you will have to account for this.
Let me know if you have follow up.
During channel change, Monitor mode may act differently, since it is an internal calibration. For how long do you see the increase in power? This may help us identify if it is from Channel change or not.
