In reading different articles & such, I've come across the names Konig, Karl, & Kasimir as the phonic explanation for the 109k. What is it really? Not that it really matters but I'm curious & would appreciate any help.
FWIW,
Good Hunting!

According to my sources, "Kurfurst" was the name given to the K series. Hope it helps.

I believe Storm is right, Kurfurst is the correct title.

Koning is also used librally but to my knowledge wasn't the 'official' name used.

What about the F? I always thought it was Friedrich, but someone on the zone corrected me and said it was Farao or something similar.

Emil, you answered my question before I'd even finished asking it.

It is Friedrich, Nashwan

The phonetic alphabet is still in use today, nothing war-related. Let me think...

Anton
Berta
Caesar
Dora
Emil
Friedrich
Gustav
Heinrich
Ida
Januar (?)
Karl/Konrad
Ludwig
Martha
Norbert/Nordpol (?)
Otto
Paula
Q (????)
Richard
Siegfried
Theodor
Ulrich
V (????)
Walter
Xaver
Ypsilon
Z (????)

Well...school is long ago. Mostly it's male names, some female names. In fact you can use whatever you want - so you will find heaps of versions...

Januar = January
Nordpol = North Pole
As for the letters like Q (koo) & V (vow) they must be distinct to be easily recognized on a noisy radio channel.
