Have you guys looked into Nanoradio? Specifically NRX700/2 :

Haven't worked (or actually talked) w/ them, but stumbled across them
when working on another project. Seem small, so they may work w/ Free
Software technologist.

I have a longer list some where, just need to dig it up, will post it
when I find it.
