I doubt they have something so modern and advanced.
But maybe they have a Wincofón.

Ahhh, tears of joy rolled down my cheeks when I saw a short time ago that the brand has been revived (for Crosley-style crap, shamefully :( )! I'm surprised that it took this long, considering that Winco (and Spica and other classic brands) is being stamped on crappy electronics since the '90s...

For non-Argies: "Wincofón", from its parent brand Winco and -phon, was a popular brand of portable turntables in the sixties and seventies.

However, the Wincofón was a read-only device. Maybe a Geloso would be more appropiate for NOTAMs management.

Indeed. Not_fun fact: I "discovered" music playing with an old portable Winco reel-to-reel machine that Not_Dad bought at a flea market (Parque Rivadavia), listening to his old tapes when I was 6-7. It was similar to the one pictured below.
I also have two of "Alta Tensión"'s colorful records. i wish I had them all :(

Nooooooooooooooo :(
I have this one and the multicolored Primavera con Alta Tensión, recently blocked several years after publishing. Alta Tensión en Sótano Beat spent more than a year blocked a couple of years ago, so hopefully Primavera also reappears one day. Phugoiding, benchmarking, sleeping copyrights :x :evil:

My brother sold my
beloved Winco R2R and several toys from my childhood, including my Thundercats sword (with light!) and my favourite, a Duravit Ford F-100 :cry: :cry: .
Not_Dad has a Geloso and a Wincofón, but they're relatively recent (last 20 years or so) acquisitions.

I didn't know that a "Alta Tensión en Sótano Beat" existed. Nice!

Ah... Duravit. Was its slogan "Dura, toda la vida"? I had a couple of those. I could never figure out what they were made of. Some kind of resin, I suppose (like grey Poxipol?).
My favorite... toys? were the Mis Ladrillos and the Mecano. They definitively impacted my technical / engineering appreciation that marked my life and career. I also had a couple of technical toys like the Rasti Clock, the Rasti Copter and the Air Jammer Road Runner.

There seems to be a lot of burdensome and trivial NOT_AMs, but they do seem well managed from the time aspect.

I AM EXTREMELY WORRIED ABOUT THE HEALTH OF THIS FORUM AS NO ONE HAS NOTED THE NOT_AM THAT SWEET MONKEY RIVER IS CLSD INDFLY! :shock: :( :? :o

I didn't have one of those, unfortunately. But I did have tricycles first and then bicycles (with training wheels first and then without).

Sorry. I saw the original NOT_AM

NOT_AM: SWT MNKY RVR, Valid: INDEF. Gbrl not_wlcm. GNOUS on and abt fld. Shrdd TP ocnl prsnt

With GNOUS on and abt fld and Shrdd TP ocnl prsnt the ARPT STATUS seemed to be pretty healthy.

But I missed the update:

- (ARPT STATUS) ARPT CLSD INDEFLY.


So what happened?

Sounds like a horrible loss: The hell-better aeroengineer did not get to engineer a cheap composite machine that flys down hills...I can see you attaching wings and tail-planes, to it as well. And then develop procedures, checklists and handbooks.

I made a hitch for my bicycle to tow a wagon behind me...probably to haul manure from the barn to the fields.

Aggie/Redneck/Jury-rig engineering.

Mother Mrs. 3BS threw it away. :twisted: I am working to forgive her.

When not_hauling manure, I would ride my bike down the hill at high speed, approaching the grass runway in our front yard, where I applied excess PSI to the 727 brake pads. One time, it rather suddenly "slid out from underneath me", forever riveting the advantages of an anti-lock system in my brain.

I hear you. When my front wheel brake locked I did a reverse Willie and flew over the bicycle falling and sliding on very rough asphalt with my knees. It still hurts when I remember. And I did that to save the life of a young driver about 1/2 my age that was riding a tricycle and crossed in front of me. To which I succeeded.

I loved Mis Ladrillos! Never had a Rasti, and only one Not_Meccano (a brazilian toy in that style) when I was Not_so little :(.
