As of yesterday, February 1, 2009, 121.5 and 243 MHz emergency beacons are no longer being monitored by satellite.  All mariners, aviators and individuals who use emergency beacons on those frequencies will need to switch to the newer, 406 MHz frequency if they want to be detected by the monitoring satellites.
