    I installed CyanogenMod-6.0.0 on my Droid 1. Build FRG22D. I have ADW Launcher. Now up in the bar at the top of my screen I see a number with a minus sign in front of it next to my signal bars.

    Any ideas as to what this number is? It's constantly fluctuating.

    that is your signal strength. you can remove it by going to menu/cm settings/user interface/status bar.

    Most likely you're seeing the signal strength to the tower you're connected to. This is displayed in decibels (which will always be displayed in a negative value). The stronger your connection is, the lower the number will get. Hope this clears up any confusion.
