Currently kismet doesn't log per-frame bitrates.

If you use the latest kismet git-master code and stream a pcapng log you can inspect the raw rtap headers and do a per-packet log.

That may be something more suited to a future plugin since there isn't enough ram to keep every packet rate; it would have to be logged to a dedicated file.
