As a long-time lurker, I hesitate to presume that something might 
interest this erudite and well informed group.  But I came across a 
couple of items I have not heard mentioned by anyone.  They are simple 
USB dongles  set up as spectrum analyzers.  I bought one of each with 
external antennas just to see what they were.

They are not very flexible or probably at all suited to the thread 
initiator's needs, but the price  made them irresistible:




I keep hoping that since they are made by Ubiquity, which I believe is 
owned or funded in part by Atheros, they will come out with something 
similar for the ISM allocations at 5G+ and perhaps even 3.5G.

Surely there is some interesting use that could be made of them.
