Just NATO standardised Squadron callsigns.

NATO Squadron callsigns are allocated in accordance with NATO Publication ACP 100 -  Allied Call Sign and Address Group System–Instructions and Assignments.  There is a UK Supplement Annex to ACP 100 which details all UK squadron allocations and also special tactical callsigns like the alpha-numeric ones.

You could write to MOD and request it under Freedom of Information Act regulations
They may not release the whole document to protect the special and tactical callsigns under national security caveats, but should provide a redacted version which would include the daily used Squadron callsigns.
