about the tones

they only really help if you have interference from another source.
like if your town was on 155.55 and two counties away were on 155.55 also.
they probably would have different tones and not hear each other and if set, neither would you.
so 155.55 with 67.0 pl will not hear 155.55 with a 123.0 pl.
and to finish it , a regular scanner with 155.55 init would hear both/anything on that frequency.

Good to know saves me a little time programming my scanner

I suggest going for the BC125 instead. It goes for about the same price, but also includes PL and Mil-Air bands.
