I'm getting ready to raise my first beam antenna and am wondering how to do
the directional alignment. I know the magnetic declination here in the NW is
about 20 degrees, and will adjust for that. But what's a good method for
sighting the thing in with a compass when it's way the heck up in the air?
Or is it that critical?

Thanks and 73,
