Apparently R-L46 is one of the many subclades of U106. Looks like it's a subclade of L48, as well, which is pretty common in the Germanic-speaking countries. There is more stuff now between U106 and L48 and between L48 and L46 than I am comfortably familiar with.

Here is a map of the European distribution of U106.

If you have not already done so, you should join the R1b-U106 Y-DNA Research Group (which should be in your list of available projects at your FT-DNA page). The people there can almost certainly give you good answers.

If my memory is correct (and it may not be) I believe L46 has a fairly limited range, but included parts of England as well as some interesting hits on the European Continent. However, others could probably give you better advise.

R-L46 is a subset of R-L44.  Here is a map of all known L44 people including L46:
