00 What are Spelling alphabets?

Spelling alphabet – Wikipedia

A spelling alphabet (also called by various other names) is a set of words used to represent the letters of an alphabet in oral communication, especially over a two-way radio or telephone. The words chosen to represent the letters sound sufficiently different from each other to clearly differentiate them. This avoids any confusion that could easily otherwise result from the names of letters that sound similar, except for some small difference easily missed or easily degraded by the imperfect sound quality of the apparatus. For example, in the Latin alphabet, the letters B, P, and D (“bee”, “pee” and “dee”) sound similar and could easily be confused, but the words “bravo”, “papa” and “delta” sound completely different, making confusion unlikely.
