    LOL! What a surprise (not...). Though it probably still won't stop Ric and
    his band of merry "explorers" from enticing even more people to help
    bankroll their wild-goose chase expeditions. Has anyone ever really thought
    about the fact that her radio transmissions were really strong (signal level
    5, according to the Itasca radio log) up until the time she disappeared, and
    if they'd managed to land anywhere that was above water the radio would
    still be operable (granted with no fuel they couldn't run the plane's
    generator(s), but the ship's batteries should have lasted at least long
    enough for them to get out a distress call - or several).
    I went back and looked at some of my Earhart source material, and it turns
    out that the Itasca had set up a DF station on Howland that would work on
    frequencies that she was using, but apparently the batteries went dead
    before they were in range and could use the DF steer.
    Have you ever read _Ameila Earhart - The Mystery Solved_ (Elgen and Marie
    Long)? The authors make a very compelling case for their theory (also backed
    by a ton of research, interviews, etc.) - no bizarre conspiracy theories,
    just an honest reporting of the facts and the obvious conclusions (which
    also happens to agree with my own theory about what happened to them, and
    that the plane is at the bottom of the ocean somewhere NW of Howland).
