Phonetic Numbers ~ Airtraffic / Military / NATO

Phonetic Numbers ~ Airtraffic / Military / NATO copyright Robert Nichol AudioProductions The NATO phonetic alphabet, also known as the NATO spelling alphabet, ICAO phonetic or spelling alphabet, ITU phonetic alphabet, and the international radiotelephony spelling alphabet, is the most widely used spelling alphabet. Though often called "phonetic alphabets", spelling alphabets do not have any association with phonetic transcription systems like the International Phonetic Alphabet. Instead, the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) alphabet assigns code words to digits and acrophonically to the letters of the English alphabet (Alfa for A, Bravo for B, etc.) so that critical combinations of letters and numbers can be pronounced and understood by those who transmit and receive voice messages by radio or telephone regardless of their native language, especially when navigation or persons might be endangered due to transmission static. see Phonetic numbers "radio telephony" military radio pilots police Airforce NATO HowTo army
