I am using the Orange os (.310).
A co-worker suggested that I am getting my signal from the CN Tower - we are on direct sightline with it. If you got 53 that close to a normal tower then a good day with the CN Tower is probably the correct explanation for a 42. It didn't actually stay that low but it was below 50 several times throughout the day.
