Phonetic Alphabets

These are not phonetic alphabets as in those used to guide pronounciation, rather they are a selection of alphabets used, particularly by radio operators, to spell out words.

Brian Kelk has the most comprehensive list available and many of the alphabets listed here come from his collection. I found John Higgins' Silent Alphabet amusing.
