Sprint Direct Connect + Airave

When we have our Airave turned on, the signal bars for CDMA voice definitely improve, but with the Airave on, Direct Connect basically goes out the window.

With Airave on, DC almost immediately shuts off on both of our phones (Kyocera Torques), it takes power-cycling of the phones to get them to re-establish DC, then after several seconds both phones shut off DC again. Since the DC is important to us, we have ended up just shutting the Airave off, which is bad for signal strength, but at least the DC works most of the time with the Airave off.
