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!
