Ever try to communicate your URL over the phone? On the radio? Sometimes this kind of translation can be very tricky. I’m not sure why exactly, but this sort of thing can make me think about faxing phone numbers or sending dates by morse code. We have codes for codes for codes. The codes below help us to hear the letters. It’s phonetic. And it reminds me of working with helicopters. Although, I can’t say that I ever remember someone saying “kilo.” Nonetheless, I’m fascinated by this kind of thing and I include it here for reference.
