The Military Phonetic Alphabet

You can learn the Military Phonetic Alphabet!

In the early years, it was quite common for radio transmissions to become garbled. This led to the loss or misunderstanding of important information. To prevent this, the military phonetic alphabet was created.

The concept is really very simple: Each letter of the alphabet has an assigned word. When sending an important message that simply must get through intact, the words that represent each letter are spoken in succession.

For example, if you wish to transmit the word south, you would say these words in succession:

Sierra - Oscar - Uniform - Tango - Hotel

Here is a chart showing the military phonetic alphabet:

A - Alpha
B - Bravo
C - Charlie
D - Delta
E - Echo
F - Foxtrot
G - Golf
H - Hotel
I - India
J - Juliet
K - Kilo
L - Lima
M - Mike
N - November
O - Oscar
P - Papa
Q - Quebec
R - Romeo
S - Sierra
T - Tango
U - Uniform
V - Victor
W - Whiskey
X - X- Ray
Y - Yankee
Z - Zulu

The ten numeric digits also have a designated pronunciation:

0 - Zeero
1 - Wun
2 - Too
3 - Tree
4 - Fower
5 - Fife
6 - Siks
7 - Seven
8 - Ait
9 - Niner

Study these charts and you'll know the military phonetic alphabet!
