If the original sender ONLY needs a wi-fi detector, you can get those at
Staples for about thirty bucks. I think it's actually called just that, a
"wi-fi detector," or something very similar.

For us WISP folks, obviously things get a bit trickier. If I weren't
terrified to crack it open, I'd love to take a recent PDA, solder on an
antenna lead, and use that, plus NetStumbler, plus a plain old flat-panel
antenna (like we use for many of our customer installs) and get most of
the benefits of a BVS Yellowjacket without the $3000 price tag. :)
