Mike Everette, in his excellent analysis of the radio equipment on board NR16020, points out that AE's receiver was a Western Electric Model 20B. The designed tuning range was divided into four bands: Band 1, 188-420KHz ; Band 2, 550 - 1550 KHz; band 3, 1500 - 4000 KHz; and Band 4, 4000 - 10000KHz. However, as Mike notes, the Band 2 tuning range of AE's receiver was factory modified to cover 485 - 1200 KHz, to accommodate her original requirement for 500 KHz operation.

Mike cites a 1939 source (Howard K. Morgan, Aircraft Radio and Electrical Equipment, Pitman Publishing Corporation, New York and Chicago, 1939) which lists a Western Electric receiver model 20BA with band 2 covering 485 - 1200 KHz.
...
Mike suggests that Earhart's equipment may have been the prototype for the 20BA.

Duh. I had forgotten that Mike had come up with that. This stuff is getting ahead of me.

Could Betty Have Heard Earhart on a Harmonic?

www.tighar.org [cached]

Mike Everette, TIGHAR #2194, provided crucial insights on the design of Amelia's transmitter and its tendency to produce harmonic radiation.

...
During that process, Mike Everette and the author concurrently, and independently, recognized the possibility that Betty heard Amelia on a harmonic of 3105 kHz or 6210 kHz.
...
Mike Everette showed that the design of Amelia's transmitter output and antenna coupling circuits did not have any means of harmonic suppression1 and that consequently, any harmonics present in the transmitter's output were passed directly to the antenna and could potentially be radiated.
...
Everette has discussed this topic on the TIGHAR forum.

From Mike E. the Radio Historian #2194:
I don't have the book in front of me right now but I recommend you check Utmost Savagery: The Three Days of Tarawa by Alexander. Very scholarly and thorough. I believe you will find your answers therein.
