For anyone who isn't familiar with R-4808N, it's the area of Nellis Range Complex that is known as Dreamland. If you look on a flight chart, you will see that it incloses Groom Lake A.K.A Area 51.

Now I know from reading flight charts the code has a meaning

R- Restricted Air Space

4808 is the filing number of Authorization to restrict the airspace (as far as I can tell)

Why is there an "N" at the end? Does it denote that the airspace belongs to Nellis, or that it's in Neveda?

Considering that there is No R-4808 A through M (that I am aware of), What does the N on the end mean?

The N just stands for "North." The various range boundaries and designations have changed a number of times over the years. R4808S is fairly tiny on the Nellis Range chart I found online at dreamlandresort.com. I'm not sure that is even the most up-to-date chart.

You might want to check out this section of the Desert Secrets site.

You can see an aeronautical map showing R-4808N and S (the small triangle near the bottom left). The text says that the airspace over Groom is actually designated R-4808E but they dont source it or give ny evidence so make of it what you will.

The former R-4808N is labeled R-4808E on the new Nellis Range Chart. A less detailed version (Fig. 3.1-2) can be found in this document:
