CHAPTER ONE
SNFO/SWSO VOICE COMMUNICATIONS
110. MILITARY TERMS
The following terms are included in Navy and/or Air Force tactical lexicons. Tactical lexicons
are groups of words and phrases used in a tactical environment to keep required communications
as concise as possible. Civilian controllers are not required to know the meaning of the terms
included in military lexicons. Civilian controllers, however, usually understand the most
frequently used tactical lexicon terms.
(Reference the tactical lexicon issued for your specific community. The terms listed here are
simply the most commonly used terms.)
1.
ANGELS - Height of aircraft in thousands of feet (e.g., ANGELS 6 = 6000 feet).
2.
BANDIT - Target or enemy aircraft.
3.
BINGO - Fuel state at which emergency profiles must be flown to get home.
4.
FEET WET/DRY - Flying over water/land.
5.
HOLDING HANDS - Aircraft flying in visual formation.
6.  JOKER - The fuel state at which the aircraft should begin returning to base. This fuel state
is above BINGO.
7.
LOOKING - Previously issued traffic is not in sight. In a civilian environment, the more
correct response would be "NEGATIVE CONTACT."
Example
ATC:
"KATT 810, traffic twelve o'clock, one mile,
16,000."
SNFO/SWSO:
"KATT 810, looking."
Traffic calls will now be discontinued by the controller unless the traffic continues to be a
hazard.
8.
NO JOY - You were unable to contact ATC on a particular frequency.
Example
SNFO/SWSO:
"DEPARTURE, BUCK 712, no joy on 327.0.
Also, aircrew does not have visual contact with the target/bandit; opposite of term "TALLY."
