    There are a couple of "standard" phonetic alphabets in use. If you search the web for them, you'll find them. And, then, you have the folks who get creative...

    I used that at my last agency. I still slip sometimes and drive my dispatchers crazy. "Alpha Ida Sierra 1 5 0 9."

    We had a new dispatcher one day, with no prior related experience, so no experience with phonetic alphabets. I slipped one day and called a tag is is "Sierra Foxtrot Alpha 1234" or the like... She figured out the Sierra = S pretty well, but wasn't sure if I meant F-T or F with Foxtrot!

    We had an officer who wasn't the brightest crayon in the box. If we didn't know the phonetic immediately, we just use a word that started with the letter.

    Well, this guy... he's used words like "N knife" and "Z Xylophone".

    He also was out on a wreck one time and called for an ambulance and stated "The driver is subconscious at this time."

    Bless his heart.

    We use "baker" instead of "boy." Other than that, this is what we use.

    I've known guys who are huge outdoors guys and use fish and game names
    The world would be much cleaner if blind people carried brooms instead of sticks.

    At communion, when the priest says "Body of Christ", I say "Thanks, I've been working out", then I grab the cracker and run back to my seat

    An amateur practices until he gets it right. A professional practices until he cant get it wrong.

    They've got us surrounded? Good. Now we can fire in any direction. Those bastards won't get away this time.

    Military alphabet here. Just makes sense considering we talk to the FAA Control Tower once in a while when we need to cross runways.

    Way back when, when we called in all names for D.L.'s I stopped a Hmong named something like "Xiongxiphong. " I tried to pronounce it and told the dispatceher, "Common spelling." She was not amused.
