we did some test here in Vienna a few weeks ago regarding this.

What we have seen is that most chipsets (atheros and broadcom) are switching 
channel if they have no connection yet and can see the bssid of their network 
on an other channel, even if you set your channel manually.

So what will happen is that the first router will set the channel and every 
other router will switch and camp on this channel too.
