Your drivers don't report per-packet signal data, sorry.

Maybe a newer version of them might.

Sounds like buggy drivers in rfmon - again, maybe a newer version of the drivers (which usually implies a newer kernel) might resolve some of this.

If you run tcpdump while kismet is running, and see networks beaconing there that kismet isn't reporting, do 'tcpdump -s 0 -w foo.dump -i ra0' and save a log of the traffic and put it somewhere I can get to and I'll see if it's a kismet bug causing it to miss some packets - but it probably isn't, if kismet is seeing any networks in the first place w/ your card.
