if the three interfaces are working in ad-hoc-mode be sure to assign
different BSSIDs to further separate the channels. with a low distance
beween the radios (or even all three readios in one case) the
channel-crosstalk is severe. I have seen cards running on channel 1
even decode some frames from channel 13. thats why a logical
separation is necessary or at least recommended.
