Phonetic Alphabet Tables

Useful for spelling words and names over the phone. I printed this page, cut out the table containing the NATO phonetic alphabet (below), and taped it to the side of my computer monitor when I was a telephone help desk technician.

An alternate version, Western Union’s phonetic alphabet, is presented in case the NATO version sounds too militaristic to you.

I was inspired to recreate this page and post it online when I overheard a co-worker say “L, as in Log” over the phone.
