There is always the UTTR (Utah Test and Training Range), which can be an extension of the NTTR at times. So maybe somebody from Nellis needed extra room to play.

Also, military frequencies are not that unique. That is, you can program a radio for one location, then hear the same frequencies in use elsewhere. There is actually a band plan for the military band, though it is no longer public. If you have the old Kelty military book (very obsolete after a few BRACS), it has the band plan in it. [The mil air band isn't strictly for airplane comms. The FAA puts glideslope in the band. There is satcom (NFM). Lately, trunk radio systems have been showing up at the top end of the band, i.e. 390Mhz to 400Mhz.]

I was scanning at Palmdale/EDW and one of the Nellis frequencies used in AM mode is used around EDW in NFM. At the moment it is unidentified.
