> 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. :-)))
