Is there a way to get signal strength from Ultimate GPS?

I've been working with my Ultimate GPS. Neat! Looking through the User Guide, I don't see any way to read Received Signal Strength. As anyone else looked in to this?
Thanx in advance!

The only thing that comes close is the SNR value in the $GPGSV sentence. There must be something available as Garmin has signal strength bars for each satellite in their old units. They may have used the binary format to get the data.
