Possible Title: Radio Spelling

Theme: Aviation or NATO pronunciation alphabet spelled out to stand for certain initials

Good Ones:
Brightness measure, to a pilot   INDIAQUEBEC [I.Q.]
It’s dropped for a trip, to a pilot   LIMASIERRADELTA [LSD trip, that is]
Den centerpiece, to a pilot   TANGOVICTOR [TV]
It’s out on a limb   ARM
Selling point?   EBAY [Echo-Bay? ;)]

By the Way:
OSCARKILO for OK seems to poke fun at the system’s overkill.  B/D/V/E and M/N, for example, can be hard to distinguish over short wave, etc., but O?

Managed this puzzle in ink with one eye tied behind my back.  8)

RATING:   ;D ;D ;D Three grins = Loved it; Two grins = Enjoyed it; One grin = A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Not much fun
