I didn't make it!
Would anybody happen to know what a WWII Fire Mission would have sounded like? I mean what would a spotter say to the artillerymen? What did the coordinates sound like? I ask because I'm writing a story and at one point the soldiers call in a fire mission and I just put in some random mumbo-jumbo.
It's not imperative that it is 100% correct but it would be better.

A quick request to my good friends Sergei and Larry (i.e. google "fire mission" +artillery +"world war 2") yields:
The owners/authors of any of those pages, or of the sources listed on them, would probably help you. Failing that, you could ask the nice people at http://www.army.mil/cmh-pg/ (assuming you're looking for a US army fire mission), or at http://www.national-army-museum.ac.uk/ for more British/Commonwealth-type stuff. Can't really help you German/French/Japanese/Russian/other ones, but I'm sure there are enthusiasts around there. Internet search is your friend!
