This is exactly what I was doing when I ran into the current TSFT field 
limitations a few years ago. GPL code is here:

I'm working on getting this updated for 11ac now, so revisiting some of 
the same issues.

The HT and VHT headers in radiotap are incomplete, and would be much 
nicer if they could just include the signal field from the plcp (perhaps 
with a mask to indicate parts that are missing). This would be a better 
approach for 60GHz I think.

I'd like to display the L-SIG txop protection on the timeline as well.
