Best FREE tools for site survey?

I'd like to know what others are using for site surveys. Because of budget constraints paid versions of software are out of the picture and I would like to make sure our APs are placed well. Here's what I've looked at so far:

Ekahau HeatMapper - doesn't really work well. It says I have full signal outside, when clearly I don't.

Cain and Abel - RSSI updates every 5 seconds, which is nice - but in the long run I don't want to manually record all this.

InSSIDer - Nice piece of software, but again manually recording is a pain

Kismet - again manually recording is a pain

NetSurveyor - What I'm currently using, nice reporting feature, beacon graphing is a little off on some APs.
