I can only wish I had the problem of pointing a beverage. 
Unfortunately I live on a 60' X 90' city lot and I don't have the space 
for a beverage. The K9AY loop has been great for me. It is pointed

To point a beverage or anything else:

2. go to this web site and obtain your magnetic declination for your
3. Use your compass to determine the magnetic North from your 
4. Add or subtract the magnetic declination.
5. Your direction is close enough for government (DX) work.
