are the right antennas connected to the correct connector? Some countried do have different max Tx power on different channels, try to change the channel and modify the Tx power. Verify the right antenna selection in the EWC and the country settings. The right antenna choice depends on what you want => omni / sector / directional.

The antenna where connected respective to the 2.4 and 5 Ghz ports and country code and antenna selection are correctly mapped in the WLC.

I would like to go for Omni the antennas kindly advice the models

What does the post-installation site survey results indicate ? Are both bands performing below expectation ?
