"This is a test of the Emergency Broadcast System. The Pigeoneers of your area in voluntary cooperation with the Federal, State and local authorities have developed this system to keep you informed in the event of a WWII. If this had been an actual WWII, the Pigeon you just caught would have been followed by official information, news or instructions. This station serves the European Continent. This concludes this test of the Emergency Broadcast System."

I didn't read the article, but...

if it is enigma it could be cracked.

if it is a US code it is unlikely. the US used a system where the sender and reciever each had a code sheet, they used each one once. if you had one of the key sheets, easy, if not, nope.

sorry guys if its a one time code it's impossible unless you have the key because each character and each position has the same probability as every other letter. If it's a none repeating type code it's not really possible to even know when you have the right answer.
