Supported with regards to Kismet means that Kismet knows how to talk to the driver, set the card in rf-mon mode, and read the data the driver provides.

It doeesn't mean that the driver necessarily provides sane data, nor that it provides all the data available, such as per frame signal levels.

Change to another card, where the driver reports per frame signal levels, if that is a requirement of yours. If the information is not available from the driver, Kismet logically can't log nor display it.
