Default Turn off WiFi on Airport Extreme, Time Capsule

On my older Asus router there was a switch on the side of the unit that shut off the WiFi radio which we did every night.
I just got a new Airport Extreme, Time Capsule and I was wondering if there was a way to shut off the wireless so that the radio won't transmit or receive at night? I know there is a function to disable the internet at night, but I still can see the base station (just not connect to it) so I know the radio still is on.

How do I shut it off at night or on a schedule minus unplugging it from the wall?

There was some discussion about doing that which you might find helpful here: How can I toggle Wi-Fi on an Airport Extreme without losing settings? | MacRumors Forums

Basically they were able to create two profiles, with with wifi activated and the other with it deactivated, and then use the airport utility to flip between them.

Or you could just get one of those lamp timers at the hardware store and plug the airport into that.
