COTD: show ap allowed-channels

The "show ap allowed-channels" command will show you what channels are allowed indoors and outdoors for each regulatory domain. You can even narrow it down to a particular AP if you would like. If I wanted to know what the allowed indoor as well as outdoor channels are in India:
