Challenge #155: March Cryptanalytics

TerryT
Alteryx Alumni (Retired)

We've received the following repeated transmission, but our communications channel is just so unreliable!
We think if we analyze each string for the most frequent character in each position we can reconstruct the message.

Yesterday we received the following:

 

  Htl2!
  ce+lo
  ve8lz
  HDlcF
  u8pho

 

We reasoned that since we received 'H' in the first column the most times, and 'e' in the second column the most times, we think the greeting "Hello" was sent.

 

Can you help?
