geolookup does not return all PWSs in area

Greetings I am attempting this query:
http://api.wunderground.com/api/MYKEY/geolookup/q/Austria/Vienna.json

This returns 20 some PWSs with a max distance of 3km. According to WunderMap there are many, many more than this. I thought this routine was suppose to return up to 50 stations from a 40km range. Any help or suggestions on what to try?

Thanks!

No explanation. I went with the following workaround: I divided my area into a ~3km grid and performed a geolookup at the center point of each grid cell. I'm not 100% sure this returned all the stations Wunderground displays in the WunderMap, but it certainly gets more than the single call.
