The original idea does one better by splitting high and low bands first. If that
is combined with Goertzel it might be even better: by looking at how much low
band energy there is total versus the low detected tone, and the same for the
high band total versus the high band detected tone. Only if the detected tone is
sufficiently strong compared to the total band it is in should the tone be

But it may be more expensive computationally than doing twice the number of
Goertzel filters.

Harmonics seem like a bad idea. In between frequencies are better, but using the
total band energy must be the most sure way to detect interference.
