If you are in a subdivision where the streets are laid out
N-S-E-W, or NW-SE-NE-SW then you could just line up using your
street as a guide.

Gad, I'm sure glad I took my beams down so I don't have to worry
about all this complicated stuff!

If you need that much accuracy ... It'll cost ya but can be done.

hire a Surveyor to come out and paint a survey line true north
from your tower.

Hang a plumb bob off of the boom and turn the antenna untill
plumbob intercects the True north line.

Done .
