looks like bad joke. you can make antenna from few copper wires and 
expanded polystyrene - getting 12-14dB isn't hard (i mean yagi).

for a long time i don't use radios so i can recommend NOW.

anyway - it's less important than antennas - the one that have best 
distance with builtin 1dB antennas will be best with antennas on long 

and make sure they have bridge mode not only AP or AP-client - it always 
make a difference.
