    Sometimes phonetics are necessary on repeaters in trying to understand someone's call. Once understood, they are no longer needed. Not everyone speaks perfectly clear, pronounces letters the same, or even have hearing as good as we used to. There are times where certain letters are hard to discern (e.g. "B" vs. "P").

    Now, first of all, it is worldwide "ITU Phonetic alphabet and figure code" (ITU Radio Regulations Appendices Edition of 2016 APPENDIX 14 (REV.WRC-07) , page 257), which completely coincides with NATO Phonetic alphabet.)) I'm OK, your language, your words! But ITU first! Ran through the alphabet... I'll try to start saying 'India' at times.., if recollect ))) 'Italy' imprinted into the brain.., Who at all says India? Other letters more or less OK )) 73s! de RZ1O

    No. Since I didn't state or hint at a specific mode, you apparently imagined/guessed the mode.
    As pointed out by you and others, there is nothing in Part 97 rules that REQUIRES the use of any phonetics, let alone any particular set of phonetics. Thanks for also pointing out that "hams follow the rules".
    You're one of the few who get it. :D
