Actually am surprised there is any debate on this topic.  The whole 
point of using a standard phonetic alphabet is for ease in 
recognition under poor reception conditions.  Only one word is used 
for one letter of the alphabet so that reduces confusion.

So saying that, everyone knows that KL7UW is KL7 "micro wave"!  LOL
In fact I chose that vanity call to bring attention to my mw 
activity.  KL7MW had been taken.
U could be construed as the greek symbol "mu"

but phonetically it is "uniform whiskey"
....I'll drink to that! ;-)
