Shaped by Sound

Jeff B points out this handy glossary of CB talk. This is jargon that’s designed to not only be intelligible over the airwaves, but to sound cool at the same time. Awesome!

I also keep a printout of a phonetic alphabet next to my phone, for those times when I need to spell things out: “Send that attention to: David Seah SIERRA ECHO ALFA HOTEL”. For extra fun, use the silent phonetic alphabet instead: “That’s X as in SIOUX” :-)
