Area 51 Scanner Frequencies


This list of Area 51 scanner frequencies is based on our field research, as well as various official publications and lists found on the Internet. We could not verify all of the listed frequencies, and we suspect that some of them are outdated. Also, there are some frequencies that we chose not to publish here, because they tend to get changed as soon as they become public.

All frequencies are in MHz, unless otherwise noted.
