I think you mis-read the $132. That's for "802.11a XR5 mPCI card, 1 
cable & 1 dual band antenna [KIT-XR5-SINGLE]"


802.11n, "802.11a/b/g/N SR71-A mPCI card, 3 cables & 3 antenna
[KIT-SR71-A]" 
http://www.netgate.com/product_info.php?cPath=27_104&products_id=827, 
is $192.

	And says "Kit on hold while Ubiquiti resolves a chipset issue."

So kit (board, enclosure, power supply, power cord) $147.95 + pci 
board $192.00 -> $339.95. Coming out of Texas, office in Hawaii, so 
US$. No returns except DOA. $41.28 postage USPS Priority Mail® 
International Medium Flat Rate Box, 6 - 10 days, I'm guessing. 
US$381.23 x 1.0313 exchange -> #393.16, plus possibly PST, GST, and 
credit card currency commission ... even I'm not too enthusiastic at 
that price point.

Richard's sourcing looks more and more attractive.

<sigh>
