Unfortunately, it is highly unlikely that you will "avoid interference" 
here, since the selectivity of
common 802.11 radios is not high enough to prevent severe ACI.

Now, if you were to move them to different *bands*, then you might have 
something, then again, you might introduce enough hysteresis that things 
really break.
