Find 815: Transcript of Amelia Earhart Radio Report, and Map

Since I couldn't find a complete and accurate transcript of the radio report of Amelia Earhart's disappearance as heard by Sam Thomas, I have transcribed it. The radio reporter said the following:
"And in news just ahead, it has been reported that all communications with avation pioneer Amelia Earhart have been lost. Ms. Earhart was en route from New Guinea to Howland Island as part of a daring round-the-world flight. A tireless advocate for the aeronautical industry, Ms. Earhart was the first woman to cross the Atlanic Ocean, as well as the first to cross it solo. She regarded aviation as a relatively safe form of travel that should be widely adopted. The last verified communication received by the United States Coast Guard was at 8:43 AM today. It indicated that Ms. Earhart's Lockheed Electra was low on fuel. A search is already underway by the Coast Guard. There are many reports from across the Pacific of communications picked up from Ms. Earhart's plane, but these are yet to be authenticated."
Amelia Earhart's intended flight path intersects with the intended flight path of Oceanic Flight 815, as can be seen if you pull up my Google Earth file and then put in the coordinates for Howland Island, which according to this page are 0°48' N 176°38' W. (Or you can just look at the screenshot below.) Interestingly, the intersection of the flight paths would be somewhere in between 4.815° N 162.342° W and 4.815° S 162.342° W, two points based on the numbers:
