Re: Can anyone crack pigeon's wartime code?

The use of random looking five character words that represent other words (or entire phrases), and wherein the meaning each of those coded five character words changes depending on a randomly selected key, the day (and/or the time of day) is a common method of sending encrypted messages. It is not intended to be easy to break this type of code.

Consider this hypothetical one way radio message:

Azalea One Two, Azalea One Two, this is Rose Garden....
Priority traffic follows, Do Not Answer...
ARZWX HGMTL ZORTQ MUTSZ...
I say again, ARZWX HGMTL ZORTQ MUTSZ...

Time is 2247 ZULU, Authentication is TU...
Rose Garden out.

Is Rose Garden sending Azalea One Two critical military mission instructions, or simply inviting Azalea One Two to the pub outside Gate Three for a round of beers when Azalea One Two returns to base?

Bet on beer at the pub, every time!

OK, that was an easy one, but you probably cheated and used the codebook.
