What is the impact of not phasing out 121.5?

Beacon owners will continue to have an inferior level of service and additional lives will be lost. SAR resources will continue to be expended needlessly, and the lives of SAR responders will be jeopardized. Lastly, the shielding requirements for the 121.5 MHz receiver on the satellite may preclude the carriage of the SARSAT package on additional satellites thereby diminishing the level of service for all users.
