How do hams talk?

Hey guys,

This has been bugging me and my searches have left me empty handed.

When Hams use there radios and ID themselves how do they say there signs?

I sent time in the Army, and am now a police officer. Each uses totally different phonetic alphabets.

When a ham does a net call do the use the military alphabet ( Alpha Bravo Charlie... etc) or LE phonetics (Adam Boy Charles.. etc) or do they just say it as the read it ( A B C... etc)

Thanks in advance

Stay safe
