 system firmware and system software is to avoid use of channels 12 and 13
 if the manufacturing tag LA is set to US.

 scope: xo-1.75, xo-4, 8686, 8787.

 background: by the end of march 2014 the fcc requires software
 configuration of products entering the market to not rely on the presence
 of an access point on channels 12 and 13 to determine whether these
 channels can be scanned.
