    Default Alpha Oscar

    What is "Alpha Oscar"? Is that a name or what?

    A humanitarian in Darfur was driving his car talking in a wirless saying:

    A - Godfather to base. Godfather One.
    B - Godfather One. Good morning. Go ahead.
    A - Moving from Alpha Oscar to India Gulf, over.

    Thanks.

    I assume they are coordinates or designated places.

    One is AO on the map -- Alpha Oscar -- and one is IG -- India Gulf.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
