Are there any two-letter acronyms that are pronounced as words?

I'm looking for any examples of two-letter acronyms that are pronounced as words in English (IT wouldn't count because it is pronounced as two individual letters). Due to the fact that the word "acronym" is widely used to refer to any abbreviation based on initial letters this seems to be quite difficult to search for. Any suggestions?

If none exist, I'm also curious about why this is if anyone can point to an explanation. Thanks!
