Yep you got it Steve, the markes below the hole is where you get your highest pitched whistles, for doing your lost kee kees. The hole in the tongue weakens the tongue, so every thing above the hole has a deeper pitch, until you get far enough away from the hole to get the strength back in the wood. The farther you get away from the hole the higher the pitch is and the softer the call plays. You get your volume out of the vibration, so the waekest part of the tongue produces the most volume.
