Radio Call Sign

Radio Call Sign

Submitted By Ady Gould (KiltOtter)


Provides the typical radio call sign translation of one or more words. For example: MDX13 becomes Mike Delta Xray One Three.

To use: /radio{xxx} where xxx is the word / phrase to translate to Radio Call Sign.


OK - after a long time - I've corrected the words - added missing ones and donw all the things that should have been done.

Remember that USA / Australia / UK all have some variants on the words used, and this may account for a lot of the 'feedback'.

Spelling is based upon how words would be written in UK/AU.

There is no "V". V=Victor.

# by wayneology on 10/21/05 at 17:10:01

Also no "J". J=Juliet.

Actually several letters are wrong as well.....B=Bravo not Beta

Alfa, Bravo, Charlie, Delta, Echo, Foxtrot, Golf, Hotel, India, Juliet, Kilo, Lima, Mike, November, Oscar, Papa, Qubec, Romeo, Sierra, Tango, Uniform, Victor, Whiskey, X-ray, Yankee, Zulu

Alpha, Lemur, Quebec, not Alfa, Lima, Qubec.

My bad, it is Lima.

V doesn't seem to work.

According to Wikipedia, it's called the "NATO phonetic alphabet" or the "international radiotelephony spelling alphabet." I've edited my copy of the scripts with the missing letter/word combinations.

I think I won't need it... I'm faster in spelling than this little script...
