You are apparently just entering http://www.findu.com into your browser 
and then navigating links to get to the map which defauts to K4HG.

To go directly to your own callsign (or anyone else's) enter:

   < http://map.findu.com/callsign > 

          i.e. you would enter:

   < http://map.findu.com/k9>dci-9
