Is it possible to use a US-sourced Airport Extreme in the UK (aside from the fact it'll need a different shaped plug)

I've got the opportunity to pick up an Apple Extreme Base Station from a friend in the US, for use in the UK and I'd like to replace my antique Netgear router with it - I know it'll have a different shaped plug, but I wanted to know:

a) Will it work on the same frequencies/channels as a UK wi0fi network
b) does the transformers cope with 240v AC rather than 110v?

Cheers
