Tony Parks (KB9YIG) who makes the SoftRocks, on occasion has a 2 meter receiver kit for approximately $50 or so. Since it's an SDR, you are only limited by software as to the modes it covers.
I think if we email him enough, he'll start to make them available again.
The only 70cm kit that I know of, is the UHFSDR (WB6DHW) which just recently started to become available.
Another alternative is the Fun Cube Dongle. Although not a kit, it's an SDR with coverage from roughly 50 Mhz to 2 Ghz.
