How to verify if an AP is transmitting beacons

For a dual band AP run the following commands multiple times to verify that the “Beacons Transmitted” counter is incrementing: 

Band a: 

(mm6000-M3) #show ap debug radio-stats ap-name M3-ap125 radio 0 advanced | include Beacon 
Resets Beacon Fail        0 
Beacons Transmitted       162148 
Failed Beacons            26 
Multi-Beacon Fail         0 
Beacon Interrupts         81126 
Beacons Received          0
