Whiskey Tango Foxtrot

As I get ready to be a licensed amateur radio operator, I need to memorize the phonetic alphabet. The one that goes:

  • alpha
  • beta
  • charlie
  • ?

crap, what’s “d”? and I’m pretty “b” isn’t “beta. So much to learn. The funny thing, at least to me, is that until I started writing this post it did not occur to me that the reason they called the movie, “Whiskey Tango Foxtrot” (and I knew it was from the phonetic alphabet) is that it represents “WTF” or, more commonly, “WTF?”
