Twisted Phonetic Alphabet
Stu W0STU just posted an article on HamRadioSchool.com about the use of phonetic alphabets. I had previously posted a Shack Talk article on the same subject.
The “standard” phonetic alphabet is the ITU alphabet but I am starting to think that we might need to get a little more creative on our use of phonetics. Why not innovate in this area, just like we innovate on the technical front?
Towards that end, I was reminded of his phonetic alphabet listed over at netfunny.com:
A Are N Nine B Bee O Owe C Cite P Pseudonym D Double-U Q Queue E Eye R Rap F Five S Sea G Genre T Tsunami H Hoe U Understand? I I V Vie J Junta W Why K Knot X Xylophone L Lye Y You M Me Z Zero
Even this creative alphabet can be improved on. For example, I think H should be Honor.
What do you think?
The post Twisted Phonetic Alphabet appeared first on The KØNR Radio Site.
See what happens when you make certain things legal.
What bugs me is when people say “Kilowatt” for “K” instead of “Kilo”, AND they are not using an amp.
Kinda think ‘Heir’ would be good for “H”
I already use ‘old’ , ‘nasty’, ‘odor’ for my call sign!
Very good Will. I really can’t think of a good one for mine.
