    I know it. It's not just the military that uses it. My family owns a plane, and pilots are required to use it over the radio. It's called the phonetic alphabet Anyway, it's

    A = Alpha
    B = Bravo
    C = Charlie
    D = Delta
    E = Echo
    F = Foxtrot
    G = Golf
    H = Hotel
    I = Indigo
    J = Juliet
    K = Kilo
    L = Lima
    M = Mike
    N = November
    O = Oscar
    P = Papa
    Q = Qubec
    R = Romeo
    S = Sierra
    T = Tango
    U = Uniform
    V = Victor
    W = Wiskey
    X = X-Ray
    Y = Yankee
    Z = Zulu

    Numbers are as follow:

    1 = One
    2 = Two
    3 = Three
    4 = Four
    5 = Five
    6 = Six
    7 = Seven
    8 = Eight
    9 = Niner
    10 = One, Zero
    **and from that point forward, its one one, one two, one three, etc.

    Decimals are "points" instead. And that's about it.

    5 = Fife

    I sure hope those heavily armed miltary guys can tell the difference between fife and fire, otherwise bad stuff might happen.

    lol yeah sorry. I've been playing too much Operation Flashpoint (it uses the old system).

    The alphabet is used by all NATO countries, so, niene = No in german so the germans might get confused when they heard an american pronouncing nine.
