Re: SEC: UNCLASSIFIED - RE: Compass corrections (Sun & surveyors)



1.  Drive a stake into the ground at around noon (not at all critical).  
2.  Adjust the stake angle to eliminate any shadow.  
3.  Wait 15-30 minutes.  The shadow will point EXACTLY east.

This is an old trick from the Boy Scout Handbook, circa 1969.
