During WW II, the Ghost Army, officially the 23rd Headquarters Special Troops, was an 1,100 man unit, tasked with battlefield deception of the enemy. The inspiration for these operations came from British units that had previously employed deception tactics. Their mission was to impersonate Allied units to manipulate enemy responses on the battlefield, thus aiding Allied efforts. This was done by the use of visual, sonic, radio and theatrical effects know as atmosphere. Props such as inflatable tanks, cannons and airplanes were deployed to fool enemy observers. The recorded sounds of tanks, vehicles and large numbers of troops in bivouac were played on large portable sound systems to add realism. Fake radio traffic, " spoof radio " as it was called, was sent to mimic a large units communications, right down to mimicking the fists of know operators. Finally atmosphere was added to complete the illusion. This might consist of misleading insignia, road signs and simulated troop activity carried out by only a few soldiers. There were even men in uniform, sent into towns to " accidentally " leak information to suspected enemy spies. They staged more than 20 operations, often very near the front lines, and were largely successful in their efforts. We thank these men and their comrades, past and present, for their service and sacrifice.
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.")
23RD HEADQUARTERS SPECIAL TROOPS
The 86 total letters contain these 23 different letters and numbers : A B C D E F G H I K L M N O P Q R S T U Y 2 3
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.
See the Alphabet Tutorial page for an excellent way to track any and all of our alphabet type challenges.
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.

K3WWP: Another fairly easy challenge. No searching for letters. I just took them as they came from my regular streak and DX streak QSOs. It sure helped working DL40IPARC, F/ON6JUN/P (even without the P), and VP2V/K6TOP. The final 3 letters came within a few minutes from EI3KG (I) and K8GTQ (TQ) on June 13 (14 Z time). Next up now, the FD challenge.
K1IEE: Finding the band conditions to work stations for the challenge is a challenge. Thanks to all 73 Dick
N3MLB: This was my first challenge and it won't be my last. I worked like heck on this and enjoyed every minute. What a thrill to work 4W to Ukraine (4,400 miles) for the final letters.
WV8DH: Only my second challenge but again it was fun working CW QRP from WV. I wish the sunspot cycle would sart going back up! 72/73, Dave
N1JI: Special event station 9A1TESLA really helped me get a lot of the letters this month. Thanks for the interesting challenge!
WB4M: This was my very first challenge! Lot of fun for those of us who are not affiliated with a club and unable to work the entire contest. I was able to get the 20 state challenge in less than 2 hours, working mostly 20 meters which had some really deep QSB and north-south propagation.
PA0XAW: A lot of letters; SOTA station DL/OE5EEP/P was a good one fort he letter E, and OH2LIO a nice one for the letter O. Nice challenge! 73, Age
N8XMS: Almost everything in the list this month needed one or more "T's" and for some reason I had a really hard time finding calls that contained that letter. I didn't find my 1st "T" until the 22nd of the month. With the end of the month approaching I aggressively went hunting for them and managed to complete the challenge with a few days to spare.
W2JEK: A GOOD CHALLENGE ESPECIALLY WITH NO SUNSPOT DAYS OF LATE. LAST LETTERS WERE Q AND S. ALMOST WENT DOWN TO THE WIRE BUT FINISHED ON JUNE 30 AT 1602 UTC. LOTS OF FUN. 72 AND 73 DON YOUNGER #1135
KG5HCF: NOT MUCH TIME TO WORK ON CHALLENGE THIS MONTH BUT ENJOYED WHAT TIME I HAD. THANKS NAQCC
WA2FBN: Another fun challenge. Thanks to all who made it possible. 72 Ken
