Just got this rig recently.Do I have to program the ctcss or dcs tone for each repeater I want to use or are they already preprogramed?

That's not something the manufacturer can know ahead of time. You either have to program them, or check your radio manual to see if that model has a tune scan function. If not, you have to get the tone data from the repeater owner, someone in the area who knows, or repeater information on a web site, like the local club or repeater organization. What feels like pre-programing of the repeaters is just the maker applying the standard repeater scheme. If you run across a repeater that does not conform to the standard, you'll have to program that, too.

Thanks for the guidance. Guess I was hoping their was some internal function that automatically detected the correct tone. 73.

There is...check page 17 of the manual under the heading Tone Search Scanning.
