The NATO Phonetic Alphabet is used by amateur radio operators world wide. As the phonetic alphabet is recognised internationally, its use makes long distance (DX) communication easier especially under difficult radio communication conditions.

A phonetic alphabet or spelling alphabet is a set of words used instead of alphabetic letters in radio communication; each word stands for its initial letter. The phonetic alphabet is often used by radio operators to clearly spell out a word or sequence of letters to enhance accurate delivery of a message.
