    3030The ''it_len'' field indicates the entire length of the radiotap data, including the radiotap header.  This is valuable for the developer so they can consistently locate the beginning of the 802.11 frame that follows the radiotap data, even if their parser doesn't understand all of the data fields specified. 
    3131 
    32 The ''it_present'' field is a bitmask of the radiotap data fields that follows the radiotap header.  The currently supported list of radiotap header fields can be found in [http://madwifi.org/browser/trunk/net80211/ieee80211_radiotap.h ieee80211_radiotap.h].  Briefly, they are identified as follows:

    144144  * ''wr_rate'' - Specifies the data rate at the time the packet was received in a quantity of 500 Kb/s units; 
    145145  * ''wr_chan_freq'' - Specifies the frequency in MHz; 
    146   * ''wr_chan_flags'' - Specifes modulation information and spectrum information, see [http://madwifi.org/browser/trunk/net80211/ieee80211_radiotap.h ieee80211_radiotap.h], skip to "Channel flags";

    147147  * ''wr_antenna'' - Specifies the antenna that received the frame in the case of diversified antennas; 
    148148  * ''wr_antsignal'' - Specifies the received signal strength of the frame at the indicated antenna, in dB above an arbitrary reference (In this case the reference value is the noise floor which is assumed to be a constant -95 dBm.);
