This paper presents an integral formulation for Helmholtz problems with mixed boundary conditions. Unlike most integral equation techniques for mixed boundary value problems, the proposed method uses a global boundary charge density. As a result, Calder\'on identities can be utilized to avoid the use of hypersingular integral operators. More importantly, the formulation avoids spurious resonances. Numerical results illustrate the performance of the proposed solution technique.
