I am trying to replace my motorola radius vl50 radios with uniden transceivers but need to match at least some of the frequencies on both devices. Is there some readily accessible source of info to determine which frequencies the different uniden models use? Thank you for your help.

I don't have a VL50, but a CLS is frequency two, code one. There is a way to reset to Factory default: press & hold PTT switch and the Monitor as you turn it on. If I got it wrong, try the scan switch instead of monitor. How this helps, if you want the actual numbers, post again please.
The frequency range and operatngmode of the two radios are compatible. To get the Radius operating on a GMRS channel you'll need a Motorola programming cable and software, OR a trip to a Motorola dealer for frequency programming. Considering the cost involved, the 2-watt output of the Radius, and the 1-watt output of the Talkabout, you would be better off performance and cost wise buying a pair of 5-watt GMRS portables. BillB
Here is what you would need: RIB (radio interface box), HKN9857 programming cable and HVN9128 programming software. You are correct the software is only capable of running on a DOS box, such as a 286 or 386. The software mentioned is Motorola proprietary and is available to Authorized Motorola dealers by subscription only.
The book also shows a cloning cable HKN9755 as being available. Don't know anymore details on it.
Lastly, the cost of programming to your FCC assigned frequencies would be approx. $15 per radio, and less for cloning like models. It might be less expensive to have the radio programmed by a dealer. Just an FYI.
You can use the model number to tell if you are VHF or UHF. You will still need to know the frequency(s) and PL code(s) your radios have to get radios to match.
VHF model number starts with P93.
UHF model number starts with P94.
The current replacement radio for the SP50 is the CP200. It is construction grade and was made to replace the SP50. There are other radios which will also match the SP50 including (but not limited to) the BPR40 and the new CP185.
A 22 channel transceiver is an American system call FRS/GMRS radios which are actually illegal in the UK and rest of europe. They use different frequencies completely and will not work together on you other PMR radios.
The P110 radio is computer programmable. The software is Motorola proprietary, so it is only available to Motorola dealers and a few select types of end-users. The best option is to have it programmed by a dealer. (Just for a cost example: Our dealership does them for $15 plus shipping.)
