Real simple and no equipment or math needed.
If the anchors are to be 80 feet from the tower, try this.
Build an 80 foot tower, unguyed, and just resting on the concrete pad.
Push it over so it pivots on one of the legs.
This will produce a nice indented line in the earth.
Reraise the tower and repeat pivoting on the other two legs.
End result will be a nice pattern in the ground, easily readable and
possible permanent. :-)))

(sorry, the devil made me do it)
