Default 1021*2^n+1

Is 112 the only number n such that 1021*2^n+1 is prime?

Besides, if 47*2^a+1 and 383*2^b+1 are both primes, then a<b, is this true?

Per the old site, 1021*2^n+1 has been searched to 1.5 M, with n = 112 being the only prime.
It has been searched to n = 2903480 at PrimeGrid, with no prime found. No idea if there are more primes of this form.
