The Patent Medicine Challenge
It is the 1800s and you are ill … what to do? One option, of course, is to see you local doctor, assuming there is one. Another popular option is to purchase a patent medicine that is guaranteed to cure just about every medical condition known to man. There is a large array of choices and they are for sale almost everywhere.
The term patent medicine was first associated with the 18th and 19th centuries and the wealth of cures with catchy and colorful names that flooded the market. They originated in England as medicines made under “ patents of royal favor “ and were exported to the US in the 18th century with settlers bound to North America. The idea was picked up by the American locals and manufacture began. Often they were secret family concoctions, rich in alcohol and with incredible curative powers, just read the label. The reality was that few actually held a patent and the ingredients were very similar from one to the next. There was of course no regulation of ingredients or advertising and it was not uncommon for these brews to do more harm than good. For example, tapeworm larvae could be found in some weight reduction remedies. Other common ingredients included cocaine, morphine and opium which, along with a healthy splash of alcohol, probably helped the popularity of these brews.
Advertising flooded the market place. Trade cards were a popular item. They consisted of an eye catching color picture on the front with advertising claims and testimonials on the back. The doctors and medical associations of the day were critical of these remedies and, because of the alcohol content, the 19th century temperance movement added another negative voice. By the end of the 19th century, the idea of laws to disclose contents and regulate advertising claims was becoming more popular. The manufactures were up at arms, along with the media of the day, who had reaped large profits from the extensive ad campaigns. In 1881 the Proprietary Association was founded to serve the interests of the patent medicine producers. In spite of stiff resistance from the association, a Pure Food and Drug Act passed Congress in 1906. The act marked the beginning of the end for the era of secret patent brews and their wild claims.
Some brands from the patent medicine days still survive, but their ingredients and claims do not resemble those of earlier days. These brands include Bromo-Seltzer, Doan’s Pills, Geritol, Hires Root Beer and Coca-Cola (less the cocaine). So while todays medicines may not have such amazing claims, I think I still prefer them to their patent medicine ancestors.
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.")
PATENTS OF ROYAL FAVOR
MRS WINSLOWS SOOTHING SYRUP
1906 PURE FOOD AND DRUG ACT
The 87 total letters contain these 24 different letters : A C D E F G H I L M N O P R S T U V W Y 1 9 0 6
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:

KC5F: Thanks goodness for POTA - lots of activators out there looking for the weak ones! I've recognized NAQCC calls on my activations, so maybe I was able to help someone out, too. N8XMS: Most of this challenge came pretty easily except for the 11 "O"s that were needed. It felt like I would never collect all of those but I finally managed to find them. Interestingly almost all of the "O"s came from DX contacts - VE2, VE9, OK1, IQ2, and IK2. My last one came from a domestic WB5. AK3X : This one took me a while. Not enough radio time lol. KD9KHA: Well, it took a fair amount of time to get this challenge done. Many thanks to all who helped me out. 73 Andy KD9KHA NF1U: BAND CONDITIONS FOR ME WERE HORRIBLE THIS MONTH. LOUD STATIC CRASHES AND MUCH FADING. WAS NOT A PLEASANT QRP CHALLENGE FOR ME THIS MONTH. BUT GOT ER DONE. PA9CW: Last week I activated 4 PAFF parks, so a lot of QRP QSO's. 73 PA9CW - Tonnie WT4U: Well, I got one, but wasn't able to track them all down again this month. Ready to start on September! Thanks! VE3DQN: When I initially saw that a "6" was among the required letters/numbers, I thought this is going to be a tough one to complete. It's rare enough for me to reach the "homeland" of the North American 6's, and with my sporadic operating practices, it'll be low odds for me to catch a transplanted 6. Well, at least I completed two of the four phrases. Always fun trying. WA2FBN: Band conditions were tough for me this month. Fun challenge anyway. 72 Ken N4RRT: First month that I've given the challenge a try. Lots of fun. As time ran out, I was two letters short. Already working on September.
