Theoretically, but for starters my older 2007 MacBook Pro doesn’t seem to want to use 13, whereas my 2011 is fine with it. I don’t know the country code selection algorithm for all devices, but some may use the country code from the first AP they see, leading to anecdotes like this: http://isnowhere.com/mac-wifi-county-code-fail-channel-13/

Some people enable personal hotspots on their phone, which if they’re a traveller, could potentially cause someone else’s region to change.

It’s still a good idea, and maybe I’ll give it another try now that it’s 2018 and this should work(!), but so far I’ve wanted to avoid the possibility of such complications. But I first have to figure out where to physically put a third gateway to split cabins 12 and 20- without that I won’t be able to get them on independent channels no matter how many I have available… :)
