-7 is decidedly NOT ok for both, if they will ever be active at the same 
time.  Every station that has any possibility of being in concurrent 
operation with another station needs to have a unique -SSID.  All sorts 
of havoc results when two stations are beaconing the same call-SSID at 
the same time in different locations or situations.
