As far as I am concerned in remote areas w/o VHF coverage VHF1 is set on Guard, VHF2 - IFB (123.45 or 126.9) and VHF3 ACARS.
So a MAYDAY call is REALLY straightforward...
VHF is not affected as much as HF by thunderstorms.
The ELT manual "on" is on the overhead panel right next to APU Fire push-button or somewhere thereabouts...
