How to connect to particular AP when many APs with same ssid

Is there a way to tell pfSense (as an AP client) to always connect to a particular AP, even though there are many APs nearby with the exact same SSID and channel?
Thank you, -Pete

This is not implemented in GUI, but you could use this parameter on command line, and possibly also hardcode it into /etc/inc/interfaces.inc
Specify the MAC address of the access point to use when operating
as a station in a BSS network. This overrides any automatic
selection done by the system. To disable a previously selected
access point, supply any, none, or - for the address. This
option is useful when more than one access points have the same
SSID. Another name for the bssid parameter is ap.
This will tell the client to only associate to the AP with whatever mac address you specified.
