WHY DO WE SAY THAT?
How many times have we heard phrases that really don’t make a lot of sense but do convey a well understood meaning anyway? Many times these sayings are derived from historical events or legends , whose origins are often disputed and unclear. This month we have a number of these phrases for our challenge. Do you know where they come from? Well in next months newsletter you can read one set of explanations. Now you will be able to amaze your friends and family with a " did you know " moment when one of these sayings gets used. Enjoy!
You can see a list of possible origins for these sayings in the May 2019 newsletter.
The first day of the month 0000Z through the last day of the month 2400Z
Just make ALL these words from calls of stations you work subject to the General Challenge Rules. (Any spaces in the phrases should be ignored. For example the challenge phrase "INVERTED V ANTENNA" should be treated as if it is the single word "INVERTEDVANTENNA.")

PAINT THE TOWN RED
BY AND LARGE
MAD AS A HATTER
The 85 total letters contain these 20 different letters : A B C D E G H I K L M N O P R S T U W Y
You can use each letter in a call TWICE. For example you could use K3WWP for 2 K's, 4 W's, and 2 P's.
Subsequent QSO's with the same station cannot be used for additional letters. For example, no matter how many times you work K3WWP, you can only use his call for 8 of the letters in the words.
See General Rule #5 for more details on what callsign letters can be used.
If you need some help with your alphabet challenge record keeping take a look at our Alphabet Tutorial page for everything from some great pencil & paper methods to fully computerized tools.
A certificate and Participation Point go to everyone making all the words and submitting their report before the deadline.
A Participation Point goes to everyone making at least 1, but not all the words and submitting their report before the deadline.
A choice of an item made by master woodworker Gregg WB8LZG as shown on our prizes page here goes to someone selected via a random drawing from all who participate and submit a report for this month's challenge. A person can only win once, then they become ineligible for future drawings.
For your report, list the words you made and the station used for each letter in the word. The number of stations listed must be the same as the number of letters in each word, even though you use the same station for more than one letter as in:
WORD - K3WWP N2OD WA8REI N2OD
NEXT - NF8M W8REI N8XMS K9EYT
(Note how N2OD is listed for both the O and D.)
You may also include comments about the challenge. Please preface any comments you want posted with "SOAPBOX:" so we will know what you want posted and what is private.

@ = Non-member
$ = QRO power
AH6AX: THIS was a TOUGH one... Bands are terrible, particularly for QRP (at least, for me in mid-Atlantic area). Hope they improve, but with sunspots at lowest in the cycle now... not likely... (but, I'll do a QRP dance for good props...) G3JFS: This month I decided to add another level of difficulty to the challenge by operating only on 30 metres. I did not expect this to be easy as most of the CW activity I hear on the band are DX stations (out of reach of my QRP signais) calling CQDX and hoards of very QRO stations calling them. I was very surprised to complete the challenge in 14 days. Sadly, this happened only because of a surprisingly high level of Spanish and other special event stations. Without the special event activity I would still be struggling at the end of the month. I would have liked more real contacts (abt 35%) in the log but overall I was pleased with result as I also had enough contacts for a 30-30 award. 5 watts and bent 100' E/F wire with a remote SmarTuner. 73, Peter N4OW: Tough one this month, but good challenge for these conditions. PA9CW: This month I activated PAFF-0151 and PAFF-0152. Both with CW and QRP. I made about 100 QSO’s. So it was an easy challenge this month with that amount of QSO’s. I worked also 2 stations from USA. 73, Tonnie N3YUG: Had lots of fun this month with the Challenge! This is only my second time doing the monthly challenge, and both have been lots of fun. I got a new Mountain Topper 4 band Rig a week before this challenge, so it got a great breaking in! N8BB: Fun month of operating even under less than ideal conditions. But we are all determined. Looking forward to another month of fun. Werner WT4U: My first completion! Hit it hard out of the gate and got most of the way done in a week, then slacked off until 10 days left and started wondering if anyone else had a call with a "T" in it. Start hunting in semi-earnest, but get the final letter on a random POTA call. WV8DH: Finally back after a long dry spell. It was fun and look forward to next month. 72, Dave ND9M: Overall this was not too difficult, although it seemed to take forever to get the last pair of Ts. After finishing up (after I needed anything else), the 40M went "long" and QRP contacts became easy for a few days. Tks/72, Jim, 6103 NF1U: With the poor propagation conditions it seems it is taking me longer each month to finish or maybe I’m just getting lazy. In any case I still enjoy the chase. WB4OMM: Well, not much joy this month! My station is being refurbished (read that as cleaning it!) and had limited time to work the bands. Maybe next month......72/73 to all. Steve AK3X: I thought I had the challenge finished about mid-April and put it aside for awhile. Finally got around to getting it ready for submission I realized I was short one letter O. I had not slashed the zero in AM70E and was reading it as "OE"... Anyway, where was N4OW or K2OO when I needed one of them? W8HOG came to my rescue. I love it when you call CQ and get the last letter of the challenge. That is my story and I am sticking to it. PA0XAW: Tough one this month; could not find one more call with the letter T in it. Ah well, it was fun again and coming challenge better…… W2JEK: ANOTHER GOOD CHALLENGE. LAST LETTERS WERE THE 'T'S. LOTS OF FUN. 72/73 DON
