Standard Phonetic Alphabet - 12097_14
l l l Q8. Q9. Q10. Always be alert. Pay close attention to the messages transmitted  over  the  phone  by  the  officer  or  petty  officer in  charge  of  the  station  (message  originator).  If  possible, take  notes  when  other  stations  on  the  circuit  relay messages to you. Do not engage in idle conversation on the  phone.  Keep  your mind on your assigned duty. Test the circuit regularly. A line may malfunction as a result  of  damage,  faulty  phones,  or  other  equipment failure. Unless you test the line periodically, you may be unaware  of  the  malfunction  and  fail  to  receive  an important message. Do not use the normal pronunciation of alphabetic letters when speaking over the phone. It is easy to confuse the sounds of certain letters, such as bee and dee or cee and zee.  To  avoid  such  confusion,  the  Navy  requires  that you  use  phonetic  equivalents  of  letters  instead  of  the letters themselves. However, you may use the alphabetic pronunciation of abbreviations and acronyms that are easily  understood. What station is in charge of each circuit? Why should you test the circuit periodically? Why can’t you use alphabetic letters as references? USE OF THE PHONETIC ALPHABET The Navy has used a phonetic alphabet for many years. At times,  it  has  changed  some  of  the  phonetic  equivalents  to  words that might more quickly bring to mind the letters they represent. The  various  North  Atlantic  Treaty  Organization  (NATO) countries  adopted  the  following  phonetic  alphabet  as  a  means  of overcoming  the  many  language  difficulties. Each  word  is accented  on  the  capitalized  syllable. 1-5
