AID - Westinghouse/Audio Intelligence Devices, Inc. Bug Frequency
135 MHz - 150 MHz  Special Order/Secondary Band (also 138-162 MHz)
150 MHz - 174 MHz  Standard/Primary Band (Most Popular Band)
216 MHz - 220 MHz  Special Order
400 MHz - 470 MHz  UHF Repeaters
806 MHz - 821 MHz  Digital Spread Spectrum TX-8xx (BPSK-407kb Direct Sequence)
851 MHz - 869 MHz  Body Pack/Wire (NFM) TX-11xx
902 MHz - 928 MHz  Digital Spread Spectrum TX-8xx (BPSK-407kb Direct Sequence)

 21 MHz -  80 MHz  Very Low Power WFM (.5mw - 10mw)  Special Order Only
 36 MHz -  39 MHz  Very Low Power WFM (.5mw - 50mw)  ***Very Dangerous***
 80 kHz - 200 kHz  "Line Carrier" Microphone Systems ***Very Dangerous***
 30 kHz - 700 kHz  Spread Spectrum Current Carrier Devices

1700 MHz - 1900 MHz  25-250mw Video and audio bugs (Mostly Federal Video Bugs)
2400 MHz - 2484 MHz  25-250mw Video and audio bugs (2.450 to 2.483 very popular)

If the signal is "scrambled" it is nothing more than simple voice
inversion, a circuit to "de-scramble" can be built for around $15.

Note: AID devices are often re-tuned for out band channels... so be
careful.

The area of spectrum from 15 MHz to 500 MHz is the primary threat, 500 MHz
to 2.7 GHz is the secondary threat, a "line carrier" threat is from 30 kHz
to 750 kHz.

If the person planting the bug suspects that a TSCM inspection
may be conducted then AID suggests a frequency between 30 MHz to
50 MHz, sensitivity of receiver should be better than
.18uv/-122dbm. The mode/modulation is recommended by AID to be 
wideband FM.

Also, keep in mind that AID devices are frequently used for illegal
buggings, so be familiar with what their realistic specs are, expect
power outputs well under 50mw, and expect to see the AC power circuits
being used as the antenna.

WARNING:
The area between 600 MHz and 9 GHz is EXTREMELY DANGEROUS as the eavesdropping equipment in that range is inexpensive, very low power, and highly directional.

Additionally, most TSCM people tend not to check frequencies above 1 GHz or 3 GHz (because the equipment is an order of magnitude too expensive for them to buy).
