how to set the output power (i.e. power emitted by antenna) for a
wireless card? I havent't found an option for that in wiconfig(8) or
ifconfig(8), but it seems quite important for me and I was told Linux
can do this, so it should be possible to do it from software.

excerpt from my dmesg: 

wi0 at pcmcia0 function 0: LG, 11Mbps Wireless LAN PCI Card, Version 01.02
wi0: 802.11 address ...
wi0: using RF:PRISM2.5 MAC:ISL3873B(PCMCIA)
wi0: Intersil Firmware: Primary (1.0.5), Station (1.2.0)
