      Depends, most of the time I find my units are slightly off on the decode,
      good enough to work, yes, but more accurate tone setting from chart woks
      much better. Also, in the cases of a few tones used here they are
      non-standard tones and not on the list.
      For me it's a mute issue though as I get a list each time the county
      changes it's tones (rare) so I always hae up to date tones for all the
      fire/EMS in the county.
