Default Possible to disable radio power management or increase power to mobile radio?

My phone works great in the DC area, but when I got to smaller outlying areas, I get the 4G icon and no signal bars or the E icon, I read that this version of the Note had power saving features on the radio. Given that my phone's battery is perfectly suitable as is, I'm willing to take the battery life hit for better reception when I'm in areas with lesser coverage.

I tried searching for new radios/modems, but there doesn't appear to have been an update since release. I remember that my GNex had updates to the modems every couple of months (but can't recall about my Note2).

Has anyone tried to tackle this problem? If it matters, I'm running Wicked V4
