You can change the location of your real-time coverage area by clicking on the settings button in the RadarLab HD+ toolbar. This is the third button from the right in the image below. Once the settings page is opened, click on the "Real-Time Lightning Settings" link. You will then be able to change the latitude and longitude of your coverage area.
