    We have been using the tone collar as you describe. We also carry pea whistles and agree,  the sound just doesnt carry well in the wind. We use the tone same as the whistle…multiple tone blasts to bring them in and one tone to turn them. It works well but the dogs are not always aware of our location. I think the pea whistle is more effective in calmer conditions as the dogs can pin point our location. I imagine using the tone as we do would cause some problems if we tried to use a locator collar on our dogs. Surely they would be confused. We run them with bells in the woods.
