We all have our favorite place to purchase parts and pieces for our hobbys such as motion detector kits, timers, FM transmitters, etc... This thread will let you list them so we can have a directory of our members favorite gadget sites.

This thread is meant for parts and pieces, not whole systems nor computer parts. If interest exists in these catagories we can start other threads for them, but everyone pretty much knows about the more common suppliers.

Let me start by listing Hobbytron.com.
They have a large listing of FM transmitters (with external antennas) and cheap timer boards.

The Electronic Goldmine has some sirens and alarms.

All Electronics Pretty much what the name states.

MPJA Supplies They have an animal sounds board kit for under five bucks.

Ramsey Electronics They have some cool hardware kits such as laser trip/motion sensors.
