ap scanning?

Hi,

I'm running hostap with an Intel 5300 AP and an Ath 9380 client; I'm
simply running a long TCP connection that is averaging around 200-230
Mbps goodput. Occasionally, there is a 2 second gap during which 0
packets are delivered, but I can't find any evidence of lost
packets/firmware crash/radio reset even adding logs at each end of the
connection.

Does hostap occasionally scan the RF environment (a'la 802.11h or so),
if so would this process take around 2-3 seconds, and can I disable
it? I can't find any mention of scanning in hostapd.conf .

Thanks,
Dan
