How to capture WiFi Beacon Management frame using tcpdump to check SSID - WLAN

1)
My-MacBook-Pro:~ user$ sudo tcpdump -vv -i en0 -e -I type mgt subtype beacon

tcpdump: listening on en0, link-type IEEE802_11_RADIO (802.11 plus radiotap header), capture size 262144 bytes

en0 ---- Name of wireless interface
mywifi ---- Name of SSID
-I ---- to capture 802.11 frames

2)
My-MacBook-Pro:~ user$ sudo tcpdump -vv -i en0 -e -XX -I type mgt subtype beacon

-XX ----- To print data in hex
-I ---- to capture 802.11 frames

3)
My-MacBook-Pro:~ user$ sudo tcpdump -i en0 -e -I -s 256 type mgt subtype probe-resp or subtype probe-req

-I ---- to capture 802.11 frames
