NATO Spelling Alphabet

The NATO Spelling Alphabet, also called the Radio-Telephony Spelling Alphabet, is a great resource to have at hands when spelling out letters over the phone as a lot of letters are hard to distinguish from each other like for example, "S" and "F".

This is the English telephone-/spelling alphabet.
