I found a dutch shop that has them even cheaper  
http://webshop.ideetron.nl/RFM12BP only 7.44€
One thing to keep in mind is that they use the SPI interface so you will  
need a controller to add them to a PC, the raspberry PI could adress it  
directly so that could be used as the tracker/digi/client host, I'm not  
sure but I think John G8BPQ has been experimenting with these type of  
units before.
