According to the report, many garage door openers use a 390 megahertz (MHz) frequency which is right in the middle of the authorized spectrum range for the Department of Defense.
For decades, the DOD has used 380 MHz to 399.9 MHz in the electronic spectrum but just a few years ago, government agencies were required to use new Land Mobile Radios which would operate on that designated frequency range. The radios were sent to installations across the country.
I'm not in Arizona but my garage door has been behaving this way. Opening on its own. Kind of dangerous when I don't always lock the door into the house.
My remote won't work properly. I don't live near any AFB's though. I'm gonna get it looked at.
Could it be those smart meters causing it? Ever since I got one of those several things act up.

There were 125 bases that were going to get radios that would operate between
380 and 400, but the military wouldn't say which bases were getting said radios.
This sort of thing happens near where I live quite frequently, but usually it includes the electronic door openers for cars as well. Curiously, this usually happens when an aircraft carrier has just entered port. There's no relationship between the two, though.
The Navy says so.
Last year was riding my motorcycle from central cal to salt lake ,
and we were passing through Fallon NAS, and through the bombing range east of there, I had intermittent radio traffic on my Bluetooth headset/intercom.
You could tell it was military traffic, and you would only catch a few seconds of voice then a couple seconds of static. It quit once were were a couple miles from the bases.
