I've been at SS for a long time and the sections normally I would rather
have Los Angeles , or Deleware , or West Central Florida and San
Joaquin Valley, MUCH QUICKER for me, but I've grown use to them over the
years and lot's of Practice.
In a lot of cases I can understand for the Little or Big Pistol where they
would desire the Phonetic , especially with
SJV, SCV, SAC, LAX , and SDG.
