Enigma challenge

A couple of months ago I challenged you to crack a code with the Enigma simulator. The response was very enthusiastic and I was asked to include challenges like this on a regular basis. The one that I have included this month was originally meant for the Christmas edition of N&O, but this was delayed because of the PC problems that I encountered in that period. I had a Christmas present in mind for the first person who would send me the correct phrase, in plain English.That present is still on my desk. It is a copy of the book "Secret Code Breaker, vol.1" + a disk with the simulator software described in the book. The book is kindly provided by the author, Bob Reynard, for which I thank him very much. The book will be yours if you are the first one who sends me the correct answer. My e-mail address is ary@luna.nl

You can find more info about Bob's books at:

I have used the EnigmaSim v4.2.0 simulator from Dirk Rijmenants again.

You can download a copy from this website:

This time I will make it more difficult than the last time. It was a bit too easy. I gave you too many clues :-)

Ok, what should you do? First the settings of the machine. The software has a pretty good help file that describes the various items.

This is the code to break:

Good luck!
