I think this was mentioned before, but...

Once you have set your beam to point correctly,
line it up with a convenient landmark -- tree, 
building, etc.  I use my south pointing (185 deg)
guy wire.  Read the heading and record it.
Now, when the wind inevitably twists it on the mast, 
just point the rotor to the landmark's beam heading.
You can climb the tower and just point the antenna
at your landmark.
