Last question... for now :)  Does anyone have any ideas that have shown to be successfull in getting a long range rough direction of an ELT.  Once we would get to a midrange (203 miles) we could then switch over to the regular antennas that we use.
I've gotten a strong, usable signal at over 100 miles - probably close to 130 @ 5000'.

I got a call for an unregistered 406 a few months ago, and we got a signal roughly 4-5 miles away though some urban areas and also with it bouncing off of some very large hangars.

You guys are getting DF'able signal on 406 or just hearing the burst?

My bad, I was getting the 121.5 from the ELT, we were using the classic LPer.  We didn't have anything capable of picking up 406, and we didn't need to for this mission.
