I am seeing alot of stuck beacon messages, what do they mean
How can I get rid of these messages?
I have checked for PHY errors, although to be honest I am not sure why. Any advice, would be appreciated

9.4.3 corrects an issue where stuck beacons occur in high-noise environments.

Stuck beacon is a driver-level error indicating the chipset couldn't complete a TX.

Your histogram indicates a LOT of interference (can be non-wifi sources that won't show in a normal scan)
