Here is a collection of alphabets of the Alpha Bravo
Charlie Delta kind, variously known as radio alphabets,
phonetic alphabets and spelling alphabets. There are a
number of distinct ones for English, and also alphabets

     French, German, Dutch, Flemish, Italian, Swedish,
     Finnish and Russian.

This posting supersedes the one of 11th August. There have
been some additions and corrections.

My thanks to the many contributors, not all of whom get
a mention below.

I can make no guarantee of accuracy of this information;
indeed please send me any corrections or additions.

Comments in square brackets are my own.

***** ENGLISH *****

The NATO phonetic alphabet:

Alpha Bravo Charlie Delta Echo Foxtrot Golf Hotel India
Juliet Kilo Lima Mike November Oscar Papa Quebec Romeo
Sierra Tango Uniform Victor Whiskey Xray Yankee Zulu

[The same alphabet, with the minor changes Alfa and Juliett,
 is approved by the International Civil Aviation Organisation
 and the FAA]

>From a Swedish (also from a Dutch) telephone directory:

Alfred Benjamin Charles David Edward Frederick George Harry
Isaac Jack King London Mary Nellie Oliver Peter Queen Robert
Samuel Tommy Uncle Victor William Xray Yellow Zebra.

The ARRL (American Radio Relay League) version (1948):

Adam Baker Charlie David Edward Frank George Henry Ida John
king Lewis Mary Nancy Otto Peter queen Robert Susan Thomas
union Victor William x-ray young zebra

[also Adam Boy (?)]

>From a book entitled "The Complete Morse Instructor..." (1944):

able baker charlie dog easy fox george how item jig king love
mike nan oboe peter queen roger sugar tare uncle victor william
x-ray yoke zebra

[This one seems to have undergone quite a lot of evolution,
 with different branches of the U.S. armed forces using
 different versions. Entries also cited: affirm, cast, hypo,
 inter, negat, option, over, prep]

Sometimes used by radio hams:

America Boston Canada Denmark England France Germany Honolulu
India Japan Kilowatt London Mexico Norway Ontario or Ocean
Pacific Quebec Radio Santiago or Spain Tokyo United Victoria
Washington Xray Yokohama Zanzibar

[Much variation: Amsterdam, Brazil, Baltimore, Chile, Finland,
 Greece, Guatemala etc]

>From a Dutch telephone directory:

Amsterdam Baltimore Casablanca Danemark Edison Florida Gallipoli
Havana Italia Jerusalem Kilogramme Liverpool Madagascar New York
Oslo Paris Quebec Roma Santiago Tripoli Uppsala Valencia
Washington Xantippe Yokohama Zurich

[Perhaps 'international' more than 'English']

Hi gang,
I am looking for a seriously competitive station to borrow for Sweepstakes
CW single op effort.  Will consider anywhere in USA/VE that can be reached
by an airline I have free tickets with.  If you know of such a place that
accepts walk-in ops, please let me know.


Randy, K5ZD

For you serious CQP'ers out there please don't forget us novice/techs.  I 
know you rely on us for Q's on 10 fone when it is open but do you ever 
check the novice CW segments?  Probably not.  Anyway I will be doing an 
expedition to INYO county.  I will be one of probably only two stations 
on from INYO for CQP.  I will be on 2M SSB/FM/CW and 10 fone (10 has been 
opening lately so take time to listen) and 15/40 and maybe 75 CW.  I will
be desperately looking for mults on 15/40/75 CW if 10 decides not to 
co-operate.  I am also willing to make skeds for anybody patient enough 
to copy my slow cw!  
So if you take a tune of the novice/tech cw segments and hear myself or 
another op calling CQ CQP please take the time to give us a call.

73, Robert N7STU/YB2ARO
