Marshall Islands broadcast recreation

We also believe Earhart broadcast distress messages that were heard
 for the next several days. These voice transmissions were heard by the
 U.S. Coast Guard, Navy, three Pan Am listening stations and several
 radio listeners in the United States, Canada, Nauru, and Australia.
 Unfortunately, because of atmospheric conditions, most likely caused
 by thunder storms, most of the messages were garbled and unreadable.
 Several radio listeners believed they heard Earhart speaking. Most
 heard a word or two; some a sentence or more. Some thought they heard
 partial latitude and longitude coordinates. None heard Earhart report
 she was at a specific geographic location except one. That person was
 Nina Paxton, a registered nurse from Ashland Kentucky. Nina had a new
 Philco console radio and said she heard Earhart around 2 pm Eastern
 Standard Time on Saturday July 3rd, 1937. Nina reported Earhart saying
 they were down on a little island at Mili Atoll. Amelia mentioned her
 navigator, Fred Noonan, was hurt, they were almost out of gas and
 warned they couldn't stay there long.
 Earhart's Lockheed Electra was equipped with a 50 watt Western
 Electric model 13C transmitter. Earhart would have had to have one
 engine running to transmit. For a variety of technical reasons, she
 would have likely been transmitting on 6210 kilocycles high on the AM
 band which was her day time frequency. There is a remote chance she
 was broadcasting on 3105 kilocycles her night time radio frequency.
 We would like everyone's help. We are going to attempt to duplicate
 that 1937 transmission from this remote island. We will use Earhart's
 identifying call sign of KHAQQ to begin the broadcast. We will
 broadcast twice: at 12:30 pm or 1230 hours Eastern Standard Time (EST)
 and again at 1:00 pm EST or 1300 hours on two successive days,
 December 15, and 16th, 2016.
 The first broadcast will be on 6210 kilocycles and will last for one
 minute. We will repeat the message twice, two minutes apart. After the
 third transmission on 6210 kilocycles, there will be a three minute
 pause and we will then broadcast the same message on 3105 kilocycles
 for one minute, three times, with a two minute delay after each
 We know this is a long shot. We can't duplicate the atmospheric
 conditions from July 1937 and there is so much more RF interference in
 2016. But it is worth a try. We are asking everyone having a receiver
 capable of listening to this broadcast to tune in on these
 frequencies. Whether you have an old 1930's radio, or a modern radio
 with short wave capabilities, keep your cell phone cameras and video
 cameras ready to capture the moment. Flash the camera on your set and
 then to yourself while you record our broadcast. If you're lucky
 enough to pick up the transmission, you will likely get five seconds
 of fame on a future TV documentary.
 If you do receive our Earhart recreated broadcast and capture the
 message on your cell phone camera or camcorder, call us on site in the
 Marshall Islands via satellite phone. That number is:
 Please pass this message on to any other radio groups, forums, or
 interested friends.
