Phonetic Alphabet

Once again I’ve encountered a situation which required me to recite an alpha-numeric part number over the phone, along with the usual confusion over, “was that a ‘T’ or a ‘P’?”  I fumble and stutter trying to find a suitable word to clarify, and I finally stumble on something after a couple of embarrassing attempts. (‘Toy’, no wait, that could be ‘Boy’, ok, how about, ‘Train’ , nope, that could be ‘Pain’, Arrrgh!)

I once again resolve to learn my phonetic alphabet.

Here is a useful table of the FAA phonetic alphabet and Morse code chart;

Didn’t know the abc’s could get so complicated.
