How to get ATC to call out name?

Hi all,

Just wondering how do I get ATC to call out my callsign as a word and not individual letters?
For example, if my callsign was “kobe bryant” is there a way for ATC to say it as 2 words than saying it as “kilo, oscar, bravo, etc.”

Thanks and happy flying!

This is not possible sadly.

The ATC voice will only ever pronounce the phonetic letter.

Unfortunately not anymore. This feature used to exist but it was phased out due to people abusing it. You may see some people with these, because they have not changed theirs. If they do, it’s gone forever. Brief explanation.
