That's the way IEEE 802.11b works.. Different channels are using
different center frequencies, but they are overlapping and radios can
receive frames from other channel, although with limited signal

That would be a bit difficult since you would need to have a receiver on
all channels in order to find out which one is actually sending the
frame (e.g., based on the signal strength).
