I hate KILO

Recommended Posts

For the love of god, I cannot make the ATC understand the word kilo. It understands all other military phrases, but it translates kilo to Q every time no matter how clear I say it. I tried using the grammar helper and trained the word many times and it's still the same?

 

Can anyone please try to make an IFR clearance to an airport that has a K in it and tell me if it's the same for them. Please, it's driving me crazy and I don't know what else to do.

 

Love the new updates, though. Speech recognition training was a very good call :)

Is Kilo the first letter?  Flying in the US, that is the first letter of almost every airport and I've never had a problem with that.

 

If you use the SayIt readback, does it interpret it correctly?

Yes, kilo is the first letter and if I use the SayIt option it does interpret it correctly. My English is pretty fluid and I rarely have the interpret problems, but spelling letter K is always causing the speech recognition to interpret it as Q no matter how many times I try.

You might try putting the following into a personal training file

 

Kilo Q Kilo Q

 

Then try running the training and see if that teaches the recognition engine the difference.
