lately, i like to use the international radiotelephony spelling alphabet, when i have trouble to listen what people on the line said, or to say something to people on the line via telephone.

the problem is, not all of the alphabet i know about radiotelephony alphabet, such as J, L, Q, S, X, Y, Z. but at least i know how to spell my name.

so i was searching on Google, using keyword: Alpha Bravo Charlie Delta Echo, i found many links that help me. one of those link, there is a link that come from Wikipedia. so i found out that this kind of alphabet know as NATO phoetic alphabet or more formally known as international radiotelephony spelling alphabet.

but before read this article, i thought F was for Fanta, in fact F is for Foxtrot and M was for Mama. in fact, M is for Mike. haha!



so for helping me and all of you, i quote what has wiki said...
