about a phone confrence or sumthink

 Finding Amelia, p. 59: "When the United DC-3 arrived at the terminal in Cheyenne, passenger Putnam was told that there was an international phone call waiting for him from Surabaya, Java. Earhart told him of the delay but assured him that she would be able to continue on to Australia in the morning. The three-minute call cost $24."

Charlotte Moeller letter to Putnam.

don't get the 375 - 137 thing 

Charlotte is thinking outside the box.

It's just her opinion, but everybody has a right to an opinion, so hers is as good as Einstein's.  He just sat around and came up with ideas; so did she.

The $24.00 that call cost in 1937 would buy $374.45 worth of stuff in 2011 such as a 32 inch high definition LCD TV or round trip airfare New York to Los Angeles with $108.00 left over to pay for two tickets to Disneyland. (Hmmm...I wonder what a phone call from Lae would've cost.)

thx martin.

 was trying to make sense of this document, as to who's reciever had been calibrated an if it was earhart's would she have had to set her reciever to 1025 to hear itasca
