    My mechanic tells me that the old 121.5 we replaced would send a recievable signal even if the elt broke loose and unhooked from the antena ... ergo ....we made sure the install was real secure.

        Be patient.

        Lots of folks looking at it. Aught to be ok tomorrow.

        I just tried it and no probs..

        Are you using VOR/NDBs or GPS..It really makes a diff bec the God's of flight , the FAA, is suppose to stop VOR function in 2011.

          Why would it be different than the 121.5 signal that was being transmitted from this elt?
          Usually a 121.5 can't be heard over any useful distance without an antennae either.

          www.sarsat.noaa.gov/406vs121.pdf

          NOAA has pages of info.
          Google NOAA and sarsat and elt or any combo thereof.

          Anyway, glad you doublechecked the elt security in your plane.
