The title is the question:
How to preset the Homepage Map to my location, to avoid having to zoom in every time ?

Even selecting Europe still needs more fiddling about to get it centred on my location with a screen view of a 100miles radius say.

Any ideas ?

There isn't a way to do this at present. However, if you did through the howtos, there are ways to put your map on your own website with different zoomed areas.
Now there are a lot of stations, this feature would be useful so I will consider adding it.

Thanks, I thought I must missing something obvious !
Like most users I would want to see my own locality as a default, maybe 100mile radius as a starting screen.

My Radmon+ has worked reliably since I started it, well thought out impressive software.
I have added a single 18650 Li-Ion Cell with a charge controller that drives the two ports to report charge/full on Thingspeak.
With continuous sampling (no sleep) it runs for 29 Hours off the Cell. Its indoors so this is just acting as a UPS.

It would be useful to add wind direction to the data, since if we do ever get a real release knowing the direction its coming from would be valuable.
I have a weather station uploading via www.meteobridge.com to the Met Office WOW site, maybe mash the data from that ?

For wind direction I use this website earth.nullschool.net/#current/wind/surface/level/orthographic=(your preference) . The URL can include your preferred map view and can be rolled back in time to match any past event. It also can show wind direction at higher altitudes including the jet stream for inter-continental effects.

Local wind data from your own sensor is of course good to back up / verify these larger sites.
