I believe I was once told that if one is using only one channel, it's not
all that relevant. Just choose the one with the least noise.  However, if
one wants to use multiple channels, the signals will 'overlap'; therefore,
there will be less of this overlap if you choose 3 channels that are 5
channels apart.
