Actually the first part of the statemenet is incorrect. They all are broken down, but older models usually usually designated the difference between bands ie VHF Low, VHF, UHF, etc, but also type, power level and some features. They did not designate the split in the VHF for example, it could be 136-150, 148-162, 148-174, 156-174, so the second part was correct up till the last 10 years.
The newer models actually DO break down the bands , such as XXXR model is a 403-470MHZ while and S is a 450-512 etc. Also they contain information as to version, non-display vs. display, with keypad etc. As mention look at batlabs. Try the XTS or Astro series or MTS models and you will see.
If you have an older radio such as an HT600, MT000, Saber, etc. you will need to either read the radio with RSS, or open it and look at the modules.
