Channel 14 should be supported, but I haven't tested it (that channel is not allowed in Finland if I remember correctly). The driver reads allowed channel mask from the card and does not allow setting a channel that is not listed. This list should be configured according to local restrictions and I think that channel 14 is allowed in Japan, but not in most of Europe or America.
