    I've just started using the stable CM6. I really like it, but two issues.

    The battery seems to drain faster, and signals all seem to be lower. Where I used to get 4-5 bars I now get 2-3.

    I'm guessing the battery issue could partly be because of the radio, getting a weaker signal and burning more battery to keep it.

    What kernel/radio combo are you guys using with CM6?

    I know going from Sense to AOSP Roms, the signal bars change. What is your signal strength, have you tested it?

    If not, use any one of these apps to check what your strength is.

    As far as Kernels, I don't deal with them very much, so I can't recommend any.

    Haven't loaded up the old ROM to see what the dbm strength was, but I have seen it switch to 1x instead of 3g a few times in areas I never saw that before.

    I get the 1x when I send Texts, then switches back to 3G.

    Do the InvisibleK kernels support bluetooth tethering for Wiimotes?

    Have any of you guys experienced signal loss when flashing to CM6? I still haven't compared the dbm to what I was getting with my other ROM, but I used to be able to stream music all day with my phone on top of my computer, now it craps out and I get data connectivity problems a lot. EVDO ~95-100 dbm. I know not a great signal, but I was able to stream all day before with about that same signal range if I remember.

    How much would a kernel control that? Would a new radio do better?
