Default Minitor IV "Stacked Tones" Possible?

I am working on this project for our local Fire Dept; There are a total of 4 stations which are toned out via QC2 paging format. All four stations have the same "A Tone", and all four "B Tones" are different. Is it possible to program the Minitor so that it ONLY alerts when TWO or more of the four stations are toned out? The ultimate goal is to have the Admin staff notified after hours ONLY for major incidents. I've tried playing with the tone formats and mixing up the tones, but still no luck.

We are NOT restricted to the Minitors as the receiver; so if any of you have ever heard of/done this, we are open to suggestions for other receivers. We have access to HT750's, MT1000's, MT2000's, and HT1000's.

Thanks in advance for any and all replys. Stay safe.

the minitor v has this capability. i don't believe any of the other minitor's do. there is an option labeled as "address off duty only" . i.e. i have my minitor v setup for 8 tone pair's on my option a. if left on that option, i will become alrted to any tone out on any of those tone set's. my option d, i have my hometown fire dept. tone only.

Could you just have a new fifth set of tones that dispatch can use to alert Admin when such conditions warrant the need?
How many radios can one man own? Don't ask stupid questions.
