My call starts Kilo Kilo Zero ---  It never gets logged correctly, it always
gets logged as Kilo Zero.  Kilowatt Kilowatt Zero gets logged right almost
every-time.  I have come to accept it.

Sierra works about 60 %  -- Sugar works around 95 %  I have learned to use
what works.

Not an ITU-approved term. "K" is "kilo."
