Intelligence gathering is a critical part of any war effort. Getting this intelligence back to those who analyze it and act upon it is usually difficult and dangerous. Of course, timely delivery is important since outdated information is useless. Radio is fast but dangerous because equipment and antennas must be hidden and then deployed when needed. Strings of couriers passing on information take precious time. Enter the homing pigeon, scientific name Columba livia. These birds had been used in WW I for various communications tasks ( the photo above shows a WW I collection bus ) and the practice would continue into WW II.
The National Pigeon Service began in England at the start of WW II. Birds kept by pigeon fanciers, or " the fancy " as they were know, were registered with the government. In 1940 a number of birds were requisitioned and experiments to determine how to drop birds into hostile territory were done. Pigeons were parachuted down in small cages that contained the bird, paper, pencil, a list of questions about enemy activity and a capsule to place the information in and attach to the bird. After some fine tuning, this method was adopted and operation Columba began in September of 1941. A rather obscure department, MI14d, initially consisted of a staff of two, and ran the " Special Continental Pigeon Service." The British department of the Army also had a pigeon service. Turf wars and clashes of ego did little to benefit either service.
Operation Columba initially met with a good measure of skepticism, but the receipt of message number 37 from resistance forces in German occupied Belgium validated the effort. It contained a wealth of detailed and accurate information that made its way as far as Churchill’s desk. The operation ran through September 1944 with more than 16,500 birds dropped during the program. There was a high bird mortality rate due to drops not being found by resistance forces, hungry locals eating the birds, kills by hawks, their natural enemy, and occupying forces finding and killing the birds .
Germany also had a pigeon program and both sides made attempts to disrupt enemy flights or cause disinformation to be passed along. Each side would replace the enemy birds with their own resulting in information being delivered to the opposition. False information helped to expose resistance groups operating in secrecy. Groups were formed to deploy hawks to intercept homing birds but the hawks did not distinguish between friendly and enemy pigeons, so the program was not very successful.
The birds delivered valuable information on enemy troop movements, morale, deployment of weapons and other activities which certainly saved lives and aided the allied victory.
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.")
SPECIAL CONTINENTAL PIGEON SERVICE
The 88 total letters and numbers contain these 24 different letters and numbers : A B C D E F G H I L M N O P R S T U V Y 1 3 4 7
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.
Send your results as text in the horizontal format shown above to:
E-mail: (You must type that address into your email program.)
Subject must read: (your call) NAQCC (month) Challenge
For example: K3WWP NAQCC February Challenge
All entries must be RECEIVED before the 10th of the following month at 2400Z.

KA5PVB: Thanks for another exciting and fun filled challenge. See ya'll in July. Happy Field Day one and all. Best 73, Chuck W2ITT: That's a lot of E's. 8-) AC2C: Another GREAT Challenge !!! N9WVM: Well had fun these 7 days. now what will I do the next 23 days N4OW: All is well that ends well ;) KC5F: Tougher conditions this month, as I am usually only on during the day. But lots of fun, as usual! AH6AX: Thanks for another fun one! 72! AK3X: Another fun challenge. Last letter needed was an I, but K1RID got RID of that problem for me. 72 all, Peter. N7PHI: A good challenge. A little more difficult, but got through it. New QTH and call sign. 9A5MPV: My second challenge done, very happy. At first it looked easier than from the previous month, but lots of Es made it tough. 73, Vlado WB4OMM: Well....got most of 'em! Great challenge. Always fun! 72/73, Steve N8XMS: I didn't get my last character, a 7, until the 1300-hour on the last day! It felt good to complete the challenge and as always it was a lot of fun. PA0XAW: Again a nice challenge and interesting story about the use of pigeons during the wars; thank you! KJ4R: Only time to get one word completed this month. I made a decision to move my station from my non climate controlled outdoor building to some spare space in the house, so things were in a state of transistion for most of the month. Sure nice to make contacts now in comfort! All contacts this month made with PFR 3. I used it for the MW sprint and kept it on the desk for the rest of the month. Did not start the challenge until mid month.
