Well, I used the "sight through the tower" approach. Of course, this was
compromised somewhat when the backhoe for one of the guy anchors broke
through the septic drain field. That anchor is more or less on the same
line, but about 10 feet further away and uphill!
But seriously, I really think this stuff can be overdone. Rohn's spec is
probably unattainable by most of us, and on 90 percent of ham sites highly
precise means are probably a waste of time.
