outer marker

[′au̇d·ər ′mär·kər]
(navigation)
That instrument landing system (ILS) marker farthest from the approach end of the instrument runway; the marker is located 4.5 miles ± 1000 feet (7240 ± 305 meters) from the end of the runway and not more than 250 feet (75 meters) from the extended center line of the runway.

outer marker

An ILS (instrument landing system) navigational facility in the terminal area navigation system located at 4 to 7 miles (6 to 11 km) from the runway edge on the extended centerline. It transmits a 75-MHz fan-shaped radiation pattern, modulated at 400 Hz (fan markers and station markers radiate at 3000 Hz, whereas middle markers do so at 1300 Hz), keyed at two dashes per second, and received by compatible airborne equipment. It indicates to the pilot, both aurally and visually, that he or she is passing over the facility and can begin the final approach. See instrument landing system.

DUNNS sports a Localizer Outer Marker (LOM) with both a marker beacon and an NDB transmitter.
The Aeronautical Information Manual does indeed make the recommendation laid out in your sidebar, "What the FAA Says," to broadcast your intentions, including "the type of approach being executed, your position, and when over the final approach fix inbound (non-precision approach) or when over the outer marker or fix used in lieu of the outer marker inbound (precision approach." But most of this information merely clogs up the frequency and is meaningless to the VFR pilots you are trying to avoid.
With the physical outer marker they couldn't do that, but now they can since the OM was decommissioned.
Radar data associated with the accident aircraft shows it crossed the final approach course from the west between the initial approach fix and the outer marker. The airplane's track overshoots the final approach course to the east and then corrects back so that it is on course at the outer marker.
More likely is that putting the published missed at WATON (a localizer outer marker at a nearby airport) was an ATC request to place the hold at a fix already in use for this busy airspace near Seattle.
Me: "PDK tower, Bonanza 12345, 3000 feet, ILS 20L inbound." At this point I was 1.5 miles from the outer marker, which is where well-trained Bonanza pilots put down the gear and start riding the ILS rails down to terra firma at 115 knots.
