How To Get Components

Ever since the end of the valve era towards the late 1960s. components from your local electronic store have been increasingly hard to obtain. The only way you could obtain such components was to use mail order, by browsing through magazines such as Practical Wireless and Everyday Electronics. Sometimes you could have ended up waiting for weeks and even months, giving up in total frustration. The internet has now changed all that and as a result, constructers have returned to this wonderful pastime hobby. Here is a list of the recommended Links.
