NATO Phonetic Alphabet

The NATO Phonetic Alphabet is a spelling alphabet used by airline pilots, police, the military, and other officials when communicating over radio or telephone. The purpose of the phonetic alphabet is to ensure that letters are clearly understood. It is used to solve the problem when P’s sounded like B’s, S’s sounded like X’s, and so on. To prevent confusion in situations like this, people are often trained to use a spelling alphabet to make them better understood over the phone when they have to read off a series of letters.
