Sure.  I assume you're using an autonomous AP.  The SSID is created in global config mode with the dot11 ssid commands.  Then you apply the SSID to which radio interfaces you want with the interface command ssid XXXXX.

Q:  What will be the effect of turning on both teh radio interfaces for same SSID?
A:  The SSID will be broadcasted on both radios AND you can enable 802.11n.

How will you be powering the AP?  Power injector or standard PoE (15.4 watts) or PoE+?
