You gotta love this guy! (Rich)  When it comes to HNSA and subs, Rich puts more rubber to the road than anyone I know!   smitten

The references to SD and SJ radars, yes, late WWII for sure.

Funny sounding yes, but you had to be very clear in what you said and what you heard.  Also we used the Joint Army/Navy Phonetic Alphabet  or radio alphabet developed in 1941 and was used by all branches of the United States military until the promulgation of the NATO phonetic alphabet (Alfa, Bravo) in 1956, which replaced it.

Not sure this was the exact one used during WWII

Letter    Phonetic
A    Able
B    Baker
C    Charlie
D    Dog
E    Easy
F    Fox
G    George
H    How
I    Item
J    Jig
K    King
L    Love
M   Mike
N   Nan
O   Oboe
P   Peter
Q   Queen
R   Roger
S   Sail
T   Tare
U   Uncle
V   Victor
W   William
X   X-ray
Y   Yoke
Z   Zebra
