Mixing privacy channels and CTCSS/DCS for GMRS radios

Two way radios can utilize privacy channels to limit the amount of chatter on a given channel. Many consumer grade radios use the term "privacy channels" to mean CTCSS or DCS coding. My Baofeng radios allow setting CTCSS/DCS directly so it's important to have a mapping between generic "privacy channels" and the raw codes.

Radios using the "common" settings of 1 through 121 include: Motorola, Uniden, and Backcountry Access.
