On the monitor page of AP add an indicator to show that channels selection have been overruled due to DFS signals. 

Gives immediate feedback to to administrator what is going on.

    Are NAPs able to detect interfering DFS / radar signals? If so, we should be notified about this on the radio page.

    I have had an issue where I contacted the gorvernment to assist in detecting an offending frequency. Because I had a radio station nearby that caused issues. This is not you typical interference and is not seen by the AP. It was not at the centre frequency.
    But as mentioned earlier in a post Ubiquiti had a feature to scan for distortion. That’s how I found out

    Hey @C10B
    The answer to your question is Yes! Currently the Nebula APs can detect radar signals and avoid those channel if the option "Avoid 5G DFS channel" is turned ON

    In the current stage, you can find information when DFS overruled happens in event logs page but not yet as status/notification. We have added this nice idea to our roadmap, we will update you guys with further news.
