I think I just solved my problem. The signal strength is indeed there.
I just happened to messed up the order inside the radiotap header.
After I adjust the order properly, I can now make kismet shows the
signal strength.

Now I wonder if anyone can tell me what unit is in the raw
signal_strength. Is it in dB? Also, if I also want kismet to show the
noise level, what should I do? Is it possible to deduct it from
