    No, it was just making noise from inside the fuselage . It would have brought the responders if we hadn't put it down so close to a Calfire station.

    Just an update on the question of whether to mount the ELT internally. I just finished putting the Poly-spray on with a nice clean finish. I took an ohm-meter and probed in with the two leads about 6" apart. I still had "infinite" impedance. This implies the coating is non-conductive and will cause no loss to the transmission of the ELT signal.

    My earlier post where I said that the poly-spray rep said that it is like a sheet of aluminum - I question his statement.
