I know the NATO/ICAO pronunciation of modifying 3, 4, 5, and 9 to "tree", "fower", "fife", and "niner", respectively, but I just discovered the ITU figure pronunciations are vastly different.

Which are more common, and which should I learn as a prospective ham?

    $\begingroup$ I haven't heard the ITU figure pronunciations used in amateur radio in the US or Canada. I'd suggest learning the NATO/ICAO if you're getting started in that region. $\endgroup$ Commented Mar 15, 2019 at 21:50

Those pronunciations are not used on Amateur Radio.

My suggestion is to learn the NATO/ICAO pronunciation. That's what is used by nearly every airline pilot and military group.
