Default IC-F420 Radios

Can somebody give me some clarification on this?
This line was taken from a website with IC-F420
Specifications.
"IC-F420 -- 400-430 MHz, 450-470 MHz OR 470-490 MHz, 490-512 MHz"
Nowhere on this page is it specified with the last 2 numbers. ie. IC-F420-10
etc. Does anybody here know all of the possible "dash numbers" and what
the "dash number" means? What I do know is the last 2 numbers indicate
the frequency range. My radio is a -10 and I was told that it was 450~470 Mhz,
which seems to be true. So, please fill in the blanks for me

400~430 Mhz = IC-F420-?
450~470 Mhz = IC-F420-10
470~490 Mhz = IC-F420-?
490~512 Mhz = IC-F420-?

I did find a website that shows IC-F420-01, -02, -03, -04. WTF?

Also, I know there are IC-F420S radios. What does the "S" represent?

I seem to be googling a blank here

Can they make it any more difficult for us to
determine what we want / need?

It's because there are early and later version F420's. The later ones are all black including the heat sink. The earlier ones are regular diecast color. The later ones use #55 400-430, #56 etc..

The early ones use #9 400-430, #10 etc...

The "S" is a four channel model (no display)
