NATO Phonetic Alphabet Poster
The surprising popularity of our NATO Phonetic Alphabet poster has been inspiring and fun – we’ve shipped over 1000 posters to date! Designed by our team here at Outside Open and printed by Color Services, the poster is available for free, both as a archival quality poster print and high res vector download. This will help you sound like a pro (and eliminate the need to talk louder when you’re not being understood.) 🙂
Additional features of the poster include Semaphore flags, Morse code, and the International Code of Signals. Also, possibly an easter egg…
Contact us to discuss your technology needs, submit a support request, or if you just feel the need to talk to a nerd.
