it is a good idea if your in the air to be monitoring 121.5 on comm 2. That way you will know if your ELT is going off or stumble across one that is activated. Most airliners monitor 121.5 because they have the best range at altitude than general aviation.

Note the military uses the same tone on 343.0.

Hi LE,

I think you made a minor typo, but I am not sure... As far as I know, the UHF emergency frequency the military uses in 243.0.  Is this correct or is it 343.0?

No worries, LE.  I do the same thing when I wake up and post.

Not only a good idea, but a requirement, if you have a COMM2.

Well shoot I know a few pilots that tell me they will tune to it every once and a while and I know all of them have a COMM 2 and they dont monitor it while in the air. Thanks for the info! afro<just wanted to use that!

Where exactly?
Usually Boston or Bradley.  I'm also visiting at vZNY, so you will see me there in the LGA area.
Oh so you are the one that gave me a rough ride into LGA last month evil
Sorry couldn't resist, it was just a stormy night at LGA and we had allready sat in Detroit for an hour then circled Ny area a couple of times.

Remember analog 121.5 beacons will be substituted by digital more precise 406MHZ beacons.

...which will also (essentially) be a federal mandate (to operate 406 MHz beacons) after Feb. 1, 2009.  That's when COSPAS-SARSAT will cease the monitoring of 121.5/243.0 MHz for ELTs.  Click here for more details

I did not know this. I was planning on buying a Breitling Emergency. Im glad I didn't spend $4500 on a watch that will be obsolete in the states in 3 years. Thanks for saving me the money!!!

This N-403HP flight was crossing the border from Germany to the Netherlands with a switched on ELT and he couldn't find the switch to turn it off.  cheesy.
 At one moment he was very close to my home and for two minuts long the ELT was 5-5. At the end he finds the solution and reply's to the controller in Dutch;"I found teh sollution by reading the maual." grin
If your'e interested you can find the recording at http://home.xmsnet.nl/berendbotje
