I'm not aware of anything cheap for home-type use. The cheapest we were quoted was around $8,000 but that couldn't be opened up to include public safety frequencies. It also depends on how big an area you need to cover.
We also have problems with our radios at the local hospital so we've put in a passive antenna for that. Those aren't as good as a BDA and only work for the radios and not phones. Equipment and labor for that was around $1,200.
That's not to say that there aren't other things out there, I just don't know of them.
