As bernhard said, they do it at poweron.
Enterprise products do it via other means- eg having a second nic to do scanning, oe having enough overlapping channel APs to just scan a lot of channels by occupying a lot of channels. :)
But yes, that's one feature that I intended with the survey support. It just doesn't do a survey check whilst scanning atm.

Is it possible to implement automatic channel selection by AP, with
Some SOHO routers have such functionality.
I mean, that card could monitor channels activity like new
"athsurvey" tool does, say, one per minute, and switch to channel
which was least busy for, say, last 10 minutes. It should not switch
more often tan same 10 minutes (all configurable) in any case.
It seems, that in my environment, channels' occupation depends on
time of day very much, and what is good for morning is not so good
