This appears to be the military one (I didn't double check), but do note that there are variations in this list. For instance, in some agencies, they use all names... Adam, Boy, Charlie, David, etc... Other agencies use various other items as well, it's all a matter of where you are. If you look up "phonetic alphabet" on the Internet, you may find a few unique ones out there...

I think while I was typing mine I made some errors as well looking on those above. What you are referring to is the "phonetic" alphabet. It has been a long time since I got out but I'll give 'er a shot. Alpha Bravo Charlie Delta Echo Foxtrot Golf Hotel India Juno Kilo Lima Mike November Oscar (I cannot recall what "p" is in the military phenetic alphabet...but do recall a lot of excrement) Quebec Radar Sierra Tango Uniform Victory ("W" escapes me at this time as well) X-Ray Yankee Zebra The standard police phonetic alphabet differs: Adam Boy Charles David Edward Frank George Henry Ida John King Lincoln Mike Norah Ocean Paul Queen Robert Steve Tom Union Victor William X-ray (what else is there?) Yankee Zebra To really piss off a dispatcher one can tell them "O"....as in 'possum and/or "P" as in 'neumonia.

And "Z" is "Zulu." Does anyone know the old phonetic alphabet? I guess it has changed since WWII.

The correct spelling is ALFA, not the greek alpha...for what its worth.

Last week, I had to phone in a service call on a server, and they wanted the S/N. I used the call letters, and afterwards tried to name the entire alphabet. I couldn't remember them all, so I asked a co-worker about it. He's a pilot, so he uses them quite a bit. He also sent me a humorous list of call letters. I don't recommend using these.

I wish the cops would get it right. It sounds so gay the way they say it.
