This point without key. In 7.1 I use wpa_supplicant, but not sure that it was needed. I try to use wpa_supplicant in 8.0 -- no result

my wpa_supplicant.conf
Code:
network={
        ssid="RADIOSPOT"
        #psk="topsecret"
        psk=52d5c578774749965deb4eb13607bbfc3b8ab0bde9dc309627fd8032592cc756
}
I use this config from 7.1, in older version everything worked correctly

What if you try wpa_supplicant.conf like this
Code:
ap_scan=1

network={
     ssid="RADIOSPOT"
     key_mgmt=NONE
     auth_alg=OPEN
}
