    Ironic ... the "8" in your call is often misheard as "2" ... while I've found that in phone contests the "2" in my call is most often misheard as "8". :confused:

    Yes hard to imagine how 2 6 or 8 are confused...can only think its by operators who dont speak English to well.

    I to am one who also sticks to std phonetics...I also am also pilot and its all that I know....I hate to hear anything else...I find it confusing.

    I know. Sometimes I use "Sugar Alpha Nancy" and it makes me cringe! BUT it does make complete the qso.

    Honest to God. Ever since I got that call I've been trying to come up with a good "secondary" phonetic call.
    I thought seven angry nuns was funny for half a second until I realized that's two numbers in my call!
    Pretty sure I'll be using that one!

    I am a firm believer in "Correct" phonetics, but I have deviated in some pile ups and used "November One North America" with some success.
