It's #EnigMarch, and when dared to create a puzzle, I do.
two pieces of graph paper with letters in the squares. one has been labeled 'hidden message'; the other 'key (needs cuts)'

To find today's hidden message, you will need to cut out a stencil from the key-card. Which letters to cut out? The ones that form the cryptic-clued word:

Medium request: a panel with holes cut out (4)

Putting the key-stencil on top of the hidden-message card, making sure all edges coincide, should block the "noise" and let the message (16 characters total) show through. The message: another way to block the noise.

ROT13'd explanation and answer:
