DFS Operations Infographic
I would encourage you to go and take a look at their ressources.
Note: there are a lot of disparities in the way DFS operations work between the different Wi-Fi vendors. It was a challenge to try to standardize it into one graphic. Please perform detailed testing of your own WLAN solution to find out what the actual DFS operations are in your environment.
Feel free to look at these ressources if you want to learn more about DFS operations:
