Depth Sounder Re-Fit?

So I read Maine Sail's thread on replacing his depth sounder to a new model, but using the old transducer. My Standard Horizon DS-1 unit is pretty crispy, so I want to try the same trick. After looking at my owner's manual I see that the transducer works at 207 kHz... Being an electrical novice, I'm wondering if that is completely incompatable with 200 kHz unit. Do you need an exact match to work? It appears that Standard doesn't make simple depth sounders anymore so I can't go to the source.
