Re: Phonetic Code

Let's make a square spiral with these words in it to learn them.
Start in middle with alpha

unifvictwhisxrayyankzulu
tanggolfhoteindijuli
sierfoxtalphbravkilo
romeechodeltcharlima
quebpapaoscanovemike

or start-right-counter-clockwise:

QuebPapaOscaNoveMike
RomeEchoDeltCharLima
SierFoxtAlphBravKilo
