Default Minitor V on/off duty

I have looked at the other posts I could find on a search, but still have not gotten a clear answer on programming on duty versus off duty settings.

My department is in the process of setting up tones for just the in-station personnel and an all-call tone. These tones are new sets, but we still want the current tones to trigger the pagers, along with the county-wide weather alert tones. All of these tone sets will be on the same dispatch frequency.

There seems to be a lot of confusion about how the off duty settings work, with conflicting answers from various posters. While I am setting up my pager to be a little different than what others carry, if I get mine how I want, then I can make certain the rest are correct. (My pager configuration will be very close to the standard, so the understanding will be sufficient.)

I want my pager to alert on all four tone sets in A and B, but not alert on the station tones while in C and D, thusly:
A should tone alert on all four sets.
B should vibrate alert on all four sets.
C should vibrate alert on all but station tones.
D should tone alert on all but station tones.

That being the case, I have this setup on the function switch:
SW-A: Selective Call F1, Tone
SW-B: Selective Call F1, Vibrator
SW-C: Selective Call F1, Vibrator, on/off duty enabled
SW-D: Selective Call F1, Tone, on/off duty enabled

The F1 setup:
Call 1: oldtoneA oldtoneB, standard alert, on duty
Call 2: allcallA allcallB, continous alert, on duty
Call 3: stationcallA stationcallB, standard alert, off duty
Call 4: wxA wxB, music 6, on duty

Will this setup get my desired alerting? If not, what needs to be changed?

Minitor 5 Pager programming software
ON/OFF Duty Function

In the Function Switches Tab,
When Enable On/Off Duty is "un-checked", All of the tone pairs will work, regardless of the setting on each tone pair, on or off.
When Enable On/Off Duty is "checked", Only the tone pairs set to "on" will work.

Default Re: Minitor V on/off duty

That is clearer than any description I had found. Any "help" that came with the PPS is useless.
