In addition to the latitude and longitude, a range is required for location information. The range (together with lat and lon) should describe a circle that just barely encloses the geopolitical entity (not the receivable range).

Also, if you are having to do some conversions to get lat and lon in that format, know that the actual administrative interface uses decimal lat and lon (i.e. 45.162306, -67.251389, xxx miles).

Also, if you know how the channel is used (i.e. Dispatch, tactical, talkaround, etc) that helps ensure that the channel will be properly selected based on service tag.

Note that there is a nifty web tool for seeing the town borders for many places:

maps.huge.info/places.htm

Zoom in until you can click inside the city and it will draw a border for you.

Hmmm. From a quick glance at the maps, those look like really small towns...not cities nearly 60-miles across. Did you mean 2.9?
