Default [Q] Low cell signal on CM 10.2 stable

I flashed CM 10.2 (the stable build) a few days ago and I've noticed that the cell signal has been much worse than before when I was on stock. Im getting 1 bar in areas where I used to get to get 3 or more. I've read in other threads that google changed the bar measurement with 4.3, but I'm also experiencing severe battery drain with 20% of my cell idle time being "no signal". I didn't have this problem before 10.2. Has anyone else experienced this and/or found a solution?
