I understand that the 121.5 and 243 Mhz are no longer being monitored as of February this year. Does that mean that this unit is becoming obsolete?

Not obsolete at all. This is the current epirb. The 406 signal goes through satellite. The 121.5 can be homed in on by surface vessels. So it is all important.
