Re: How to calibrate the azimuth angle?



Nobody's mentioned this one yet...
Take any GPS receiver, put it at the base of your antenna structure, and 
note the co-ordinates.  Then walk away from the first spot and, use the 
display, find another spot nearby like a wall, or just the ground that is 
exactly north of where you started.  Place a marker on that spot like a 
stake, or target icon, and maybe paint a line connecting the two points on 
your ground. DONE!
