    is there any person who can tell me that how we use these words?

    There's no real practical every day use, this is the International Radiotelephony Spelling Alphabet, aka NATO phonetic alphabet. It is usually used for radio communications on civil aviation, emergency and army. You can give a particular meaning to each word. When you talk on radio you need to be quick, because on a single channel there's usually multiple communications, so you talk with "codes" to say something quickly and more clear.

    It is actually golf

    Whoever drafted these instructions better be damn glad they know them because their English sucks.

    Add to your Instructable a drawing of the hand signals for numbers.

    I used it all the time to talk to pilots in my helo squadron in the Navy.

    Now who can tell me what I sead?

    Danny, Danny, this is UndergroundCarpenter. Over.

    Wow, been out for two-fower years and I still remembered all of it. Over.

    We use the phonetic alphabet to relay important information over static-y radios so that critical information (such as grid coordinates) isn't misheard, not to sound "cool." Out.

    Oooooohhhhhh, NOW I get it. ( There's a song called "Foxtrot Uniform Charlie Kilo").

    if u read this far mayb u should no this okk well here in aus nsw i did my security licence and we did this but its not army talk its called radio communications if you have to give names or licence plates or spell some thing out over the radio you would use this alphabet and one other thing we only use 0-zero 5-fife 9-niner none of them other numbers all letters are the same and this isnt just used in aus its world wide some more of the radio calls are stand by - meaning u will need more then 5 secons to process the infomation and u will get back to them over - meaning u have stoped talking out - meaning you dont need to say any thing else ( basicly ur done talking ) radio check - forget wat the name or wat u say but basicly to check to see if ur radio is working base will reply stating they hear u loud and clear cant think of the rest of the top of my head befor relaying infomation state ur name so base can identifie who is relaying the message and hold the butten for a secon then talk across the mic not into it and short converstations also listen for active radio comunications befor u relay messages as u may cut some one else off more i go into this the more i think this isnt wat the topic is bout and ur right its not cause the topic is completely wrong

    you're right in one respect, it's not called army talk, it's the internationally accepted NATO phonetic alphabet. it was created by NATO and essentially EVERYWHERE adopted it for EVERYTHING. Also, please check tour your spelling.
