Overheard in IFR Magazine's "On the Air"

Heard this somewhere over Kansas:

Center:
"Airline 312, traffic. Eleven o'clock, three miles, FL 310 Citation, westbound."

Airline 312:
"We got `em on the pig finder."

N700AN:
"Kansas City Center, Cheyenne Zero Alpha November. Request."

Center:
"Go ahead."

N700AN:
"Was that a 'Papa-India-Golf finder'?"

ATC:
"It's a TCAS."

Anonymous Voice:
"That's called a 'Foxtrot-India-Sierra-Hotel finder.'"

Airline 312:
"Yeah, but we're over Kansas."
