Ingress: Decoding HyLetter1 Clue – Dec 25

6

The passcode 9re7chapeaut5w3r was finally solved and redeemed yesterday. But there were lot questions how it was decoded. And today we got email from Didactylos explaining the process:

The source is actually HyLetter1 clue from 25 December 2012, on 5th page you can barely see code:

The latest chapeau code is from the Christmas day 16×4 block. I thought you might like the solution, since it took so long to crack.

Rotate block 90 degrees to give

SIER
DAVO
BELL
SPIE
NIDW
MEND
ENTL
CHUR
MISO
ENTL
ENGA
ALBU
EMME
POSC
BARI
DAVO

These correspond with postal districts in Switzerland. Postal codes are 4 digits, but the district or area part is the first 2 digits. E.g. DAVO = 72 (7272 Davos Clavadel). This gives:

39 72 65 37 63 68 61 70 65 61 75 74 35 77 33 72

This is hex, and converts to 9re7chapeaut5w3r
