Answers to Questions

What is the NATO Phonetic Alphabet?

The NATO phonetic alphabet is an alphabet created for oral telecommunications, in order to spell words correctly. The alphabet first used by the armed forces has spread to all national and international radio broadcasts and has been standardized by NATO.
