Epirb 121...no Mo

Recieved this e-mail reminder so I thought I'd pass it along....

Dear Good Old Boater,

We came across this piece of information, courtesy of BoatU.S. The
United States Coast Guard will stop monitoring the old EPIRB frequency
(121 Mhz) beginning on February 1, 2009. COSPAS/SARSAT, the
international satellite-based search and rescue organization, made this
decision nearly 9 years ago, giving mariners time to transition to the
new 406 Mhz technology.

And so it goes...
