The AD6652 isn't exactly cheap, at $45.00 apiece.  But I had also
considered that as a viable

YOu'd need a quadrature demod chip as well, like the ADL5387, which
takes in a 2XLO
  (from the ADF4350).

Seems there's lots of ways of doing this.  A cheaper high-speed ADC +
cheap FPGA, or a more
  expensive ADC with built-in DDC and CIC decimator, etc.
