SM's always broadcast

If I take my AP and turn it into SM mode will the SM’s that were associated to said AP continue to broadcast?

I have an AP that had a perfect noise floor. I started having issues with SM’s dropping tonight so I turned it into SM mode. Now I am picking up 904-912 in the -50’s where before it was in the -90’s.

Need to figure out if there is new interference or if it is just the SM’s broadcasting.

IIRC, SMs merely listen when they are not associated to an AP. If you are talking about a cluster you will want to turn the rest of your APs off when you do spectrum analysis.

yes if you are in a cluster you have to shut down all the APs or you will pick up their neighbors. -50 is awful close.
