Another alternative to honor K4OJ and W4AN:

Sprint minus 60 seconds: all stations, spread over
14040 +/- 15KHz,  call K4OJ and W4AN slowly (18 wpm?),
in a kind of cadence [K4OJ K4OJ de W6XYZ   W4AN
W4AN de W6XYZ  . .repeated for 50 seconds].

Sprint minus 10 seconds: Silence for 10 seconds, listening
for their reply.

0000Z: the cacophony of the Sprint begins (on time) as,
sadly, no response is heard from either K4OJ or W4AN.

One advantage -- this cadence, the silence, and the
outbreak of the sprint could be recorded and saved
as a more permanent memorial to these gentlemen.
