[PLUG] GUI WiFi Scanner Wanted

My Gentoo desktop is firmly chained to an Ethernet cable, but since I've got 
several USB WiFi gizmos, I thought I'd like to monitor my Wireless Access 
Port, as well as the strengths of those around me.

I've got a nifty little android app the shows all my neighbors' WiFI signals, 
and I wanted something similar for my desktop.

I use KDE, and the KDE networking package lets you scan for signals, but 
doesn't have an independent application that lets you keep scanning like the 
android app. Also, it's really designed to connect to the WiFi, which I don't 
care about.

Anybody know of a good GUI program that will let you continuously scan the 
WiFi neighborhood?
