RE: Phonetics on FM sats



Hello John,

Personally I use always use phonetics, but to answer your question if you
are working a station that speaks your own language whichever way you like
is ok, but if you are working a stations whose home language is other that
yours, it is imperative to use phonetics; while working LEO's you may run
into some Central and South American stations with a limited command of the
English language and will better understand your call if you use phonetics.
