    Did anyone else notice the radioman on Itasca calling Earhart, who's
    call sign was  KHAQQ,  as KING-HOW-ABLE-QUEEN-QUEEN  when this
    phonetic alphabet had not yet been invented in 1937? The proper usage,
    based on the 1927 Navy Bluejackets Manual, should have been KING-HYPO-
    AFFIRMATIVE-QUACK-QUACK.
    
    (This is where the name Station Hypo comes from for the the navy's
    code breaking station in Hawaii in W.W.II.)
