Default do I need PL tones with "scanner" freq.?

I'm programming the Yeasu 8900 for the Outlaws trip and wanted to add some emergency freq. to scan around and listen to out on the open road. someone posted this link a while back...

http://www.radioreference.com/apps/db/?ctid=247

many have a tone listed...is that an RX PLtone? or their TX tone?

do I need to program that in the radio just to listen?

IIRC, with 2m repeaters, I can listen to them just fine without any tone setting - just can't TX.
