With the help of firmware-mod-kit I was able to modify the firmware in
the UniFi controller so I could restore the OD+. After restoring the
Unit reception was back to as expected. Reverting to OpenWRT again the
reception also was OK until I did a power cycle. I suspect that their
driver does something that properly enables reception. Any pointers
where I can continue to investigate this?
