Where is Hat Dich (Vietnam) again…?

This occurred while I was serving in Vietnam. As our unit had particularly strong radio equipment we were often tasked to listen in on different networks in order to back up the ground or air crews experiencing communications difficulties due to any number of reasons. One particular conversation had me in stitches for hours afterwards. I can’t recall the callsigns so I’ll just call them A and B.

Callsign A (ground crew): "Callsign B. What is your location? Over."
Callsign B (Birddog aircraft): "I am in the Hat Dich area. Over."
Callsign A: "Say again your location. Over."
Callsign B: "I am in the Hat Dich area, I say again, Hat Dich area. Over."
Callsign A: "Sorry. Say again location. Over"
Callsign B: "I am in the Hat – as in head – Dich – as in head, area. Over."
Callsign A: "Roger out."
