[op25-dev] Why can't I hear fire tones?

I don't see how anything in your replies is helpful.

  - They are definitely tone frames.  Tones run through the vocoder 
are irrelevant and OP25 would handle them just fine anyway.

  - Why should the user seek other solutions?  The system is sending 
IMBE tone frames and any decoder thrown at it should handle it.

  - And how does simulcast have anything to do with this?  It doesn't.

To the OP:  You need to record the raw signal (I/Q data or FM 
demodulated audio) so someone can analyze it.  Then the decoder logic 
can be updated to accommodate tone frames and you'll get your audible alerts.
