No, this is not the perennial finding true north question.  In my area, 
Maryland, the "magnetic deviation" is about 10 degrees.  I can never remember, 
though, if that means when I have my compass out I should let the needle come 
to a stop on 350 or on 10 to have zero pointing at true north.  Magnetic north 
is where the needle will point, obviously, and true north is 10 degrees off 
from that, but I can never remember which way.  ?  73 - Rich, KE3Q
