Hello,

with Release 3 you have two possibilities.

1. Using AP groups where you are changing the RF Profile

2. Using AP specific Profiles where you are changing the RF Profile

I use Ap Groups. So i have one one Location 3 AP Groups where i use the same Profiles (aaa, ssid.....9 but every Group with a different RF Profile.

I believe if you want to manually set channels, you'll have to turn off ARM.

No need for that... You can create two "channel domains" in one of which you can have some channels allowed in regulatory domain profile and in the other one you can have some other channels allowed.. So you can also have ARM features in this case...
