I tested this a bit today. This definitely seems to do something.

FWIW, a list of default 18/20 values for a few cards:

          18        20     
Senao     162       200
Zcomax    162       188
DLink     162       248

My basic test was with the Zcomax, attaching the little antenna rotated 90 degrees so that one antenna port has a definite disadvantage. From this it can be seen that 18/20 set to 164/191 uses the antenna port by the LEDs, 160/189 the other.

Will test with other cards as I can.
