It looks like the country code can be configured
(hw.ath.countrycode), but it's a loader tuneable and not writable at
runtime, i.e. you'd have to modify the image to change the value.
Also, the regdomain setting that's programmed into the card's EEPROM
still applies. Check out sysctls hw.ath.* and dev.ath.0.* through
exec.php, and see also <http://madwifi.org/wiki/UserDocs/CountryCode>
(this is for the Linux Atheros driver though).
