    What is the best rom for battery and reception? When I had the original droid I used simply stunning most of the time.

    I don't really think the ROMs have anything to do with the Signal strength. As for battery life I been using Demented Bean (CM10) and battery life is good I can get through the day with pretty heavy use

    Correct. The only effect a ROM could have on "signal" is by making more bars appear at worse DBM levels. This would be an edit they would have to make to intentionally deceive users (and to my knowledge I haven't seen anyone manipulate the scaling other than Liquid on a certain build [he translated signal from 4 to 5 bars, but not to deceive; I think he did it because he liked how it looked at 5 bars]) No ROM will improve or hurt radio reception. The radios are what they are.

    Then there's really nothing you can do. If its only spotty at your home, you could invest in a network extender.

    This. Motorola's radios are the best in the business.

    Unless they put more towers in your area, nothing will improve reception. Maybe new radios in the next update *might* improve it, but typically radio software updates only improve with handoffs and eliminating drops.

    I have no issue with reception at all. If it simply isn't cutting it for you, perhaps you should switch to a new device with better radios for your location.
