Hopefully everyone has seen this by now: https://www.avweb.com/avwebflash/ne...ion-of-1215-MHz-ELTs-Prohibited-232010-1.html It's okay to continue to use the older (121.5 MHz) ELT's but "Certification of new 121.5 MHz ELTs is prohibited effective Jan. 11, 2019." If I understand correctly this means if you are close to getting your air worthiness inspection done you will need to install a newer 406 MHz ELT if your inspection is after the January cutoff date. I'm certain that when needed an updated ELT would be a welcomed asset but I don't agree that the price for both are as close together as they seem to believe. ADS-B will be a great help in giving the general location where your plane was last known to be but when they come looking for your crashed plane ... a screaming ELT could be just what is needed ... especially if you were injured and in a remote area.
