Revolutions per minute (abbreviated rpm, RPM, r/min, or min−1) is a unit of frequency, commonly used to measure rotational speed, in particular in the case of rotation around a fixed axis. It represents the number of full rotations something makes in one minute. The International System of Units (SI) unit for rotational velocity is the radian per second (rad·s−1).
The International System of Units (SI) unit of frequency is the hertz (Hz):
1 r/min = 1/60 Hz
This is often used for measuring waves, such as radio and sound

So, the 8520000000/60 = 1420Mhz does seem to hold up.
I think its related to SETI or radio astronomy in general.

Maybe I'm still asleep, but how is this (the "Base6 mathematics" connection) obvious?

The Babylonian system of mathematics was sexagesimal, or a base 60 numeral system

I wanted to know where the answer came from, also. I just looked up base 6 and was led to base 60...the Sumerians used base 60 mathematics, so, I assume that's where the answer 6 came from...3600 in base 60 would be 6 orbital period of Nibiru. Just a guess, though.
n the sexagesimal system, each time a "digit" is moved to the left
its value increases by a factor of 60. When you represent a whole
number in the sexagesimal system the last space "digit" is for the
numbers from 1 to 59, the next to the last space "digit" for multiples
of 60, then the next space "digit" for multiples of 60^2 = 3600, the
next preceding space "digit" for multiples of 60^3 = 216,000, and so
forth.
In other words the number system is developed by working with base 60:
60^0 = 1
60^1 = 60
60^2 = 3600
60^3 = 216,000
