    SWMBO is not a flying acronym. It is a not flying acronym. Unless you are really lucky. :smile:

    I'll add those to the list guys. I already knew SWMBO, she's made it perfectly clear, and I know which side my bread is buttered on.

    No, I found it on the web, printed it out then practiced my typing by copying it all out... ;-)

    Oh Gawd Vince, .....

    You forgot the Q - Codes ! ! !

    These were originally devised to be sent in Morse code, to convey a useful phrase shortened to just three characters, and to a certain extent they still serve the same purpose by voice comms.

    But what would we do without such useful Q codes as : " QTG" ( MEANING - I'M SORRY, I CANNOT COMPLY WITH YOUR REQUEST AS I AM TOWING A GLIDER"

    Knd Rgds Phl. x x Dah di Dah dit.

    well I'm not Phil, but anyway:

    [color=blue>Aviation
    [color=blue>ICAO

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Q_code

    where there is more on history and other uses such as amateur radio.

    cheers
