It's pretty well known that the human mind tends to
"fill in" gaps in what the ear has taken in.   If
that's true, then it may be the case that short 
phonetics ending in vowels are not the best choice.
If you've just worked a guy with "alpha" in his call
and now you work someone with "delta", but the "delt"
is obscured by QRM, your mind may tend to hear "alpha"
again.  A process akin to this may account for some
of the problems reported here.
