I live in Okoboji, Iowa area which is also apart of another whole name called the Iowa Great lakes region. Close in this region is lake park, superior, Spirit Lake, Okoboji, Arnolds Park, Milford and terril. The county is Dickinson. Those are the towns in this county. I used to get Clay county a few years ago as well but since they were crossing over the frequencies line here they upgraded so that, that would not happen. I do have a few papers that I received from the Radio Shack in Spencer for about 25 cents a paper and not much has changed on those except a 2 meter. They used to carry police call and beyond police call till they combined into one book and now they stopped making them. I did see on here that you can get digital scanners, and I imagine that by 2009 you will half to use those in order to listen further like you do now. That would be because right now, my scanner uses an antenna to receive things in. I wonder what the cheapest scanner would cost. without the newest one by February 19, 2009, you will not be able to receive anything. That means that for now you can receive signals till the change happens on that date when it becomes law as well for tv's.
