Presumably you have 802.11ad captures of some sort.

If they have radiotap headers, do they have either an MCS field:

	http://www.radiotap.org/defined-fields/MCS

which indicates 802.11n or a VHT field:

	http://www.radiotap.org/defined-fields/VHT

which indicates 802.11ac?  Is there any information in either of those fields that would be useful radio information for 802.11ad?

Is there any radio information for 802.11ad that is *not* present in any of the currently defined radiotap fields:

	http://www.radiotap.org/defined-fields/all

If there is, you or somebody should join the radiotap mailing list:

	http://www.radiotap.org/Radiotap

and suggest a field for the new information.
