Can I get less expensive copies of Honda transponder keys?

I just bought a 2000 Honda Odyssey and I need at least one more key. Now I find out that Honda keys are expensive to get because of the antitheft system. Do I have to pay what the dealerships are going to charge?

It came with two factory keys, but I need at least one more and prefer to have two more. I stopped at the locksmith where I have all my keys made, and they told me they don't make Honda keys - that I have to go to a dealership.
I've been googling tonight, looking for alternatives, and what little I have found sounds alarming. What I've read about alternatives sounds dicey and possibly something that could cause problems.
Does anyone know for sure if this can be done (by a technologically average - or less than average - person), and if so, is it significantly cheaper than a dealership?
