Do you have an aftermarket stereo by any chance? I know this might not seem like a relevant question but if you have outboard amplifiers and you get a whining sound through the speakers at high revs chances are you didn't ground everything properly.
Other than that, alternators are fairly common to find/replace. Just search it through google and you'll find tons of places that sell them.
