You're a ham and you didn't know about All ElectronicsHey Gryzio, that is a COOL place. Thanks for the link!
Radio Shack isn't what it used to be, Lafayette Radio Electronics is gone, and so are most of the cool places. There's still digikey and a few others around, but that one looks like a great place to get parts I don't have in a junk box (and who wants to search through 30 junk boxes any more?)
Just kidding. ya that's a cool place. Another nifty little place is American Science and Surplus
