Ugh, the last message was sent before I intended...
You should set your wireless equipment on a non-overlapping channel different than those around you. From the screenshot you gave, channel 1 looks to be about the best bet.
Also, I'm seeing a lot of 'Sitecom' stuff. Is that a local WISP? It is very likely the amount of traffic on those AP's alone accounts for the interference you're seeing.
You may need to check your antenna orientation also. Typically, on omnidirectional antennas, the signal is radiated at a perpendicular angle to the antenna orientation. So, if your antennas are pointed straight up(vertically), signal should be coming horizontally. This is an oversimplified view, but roughly correct.
I'm not a wireless "expert", but I hope these tips give you a few items to go on for better performance.
