  What I do ( and I'm not sure I'm right,but seems to work ) is to use the
North star to calibrate. I live at 41.2* latitude, so if I crank my
antennas to 41* elevation and point north 0* azimuth I should be pretty
close. I also live at 1* magnetic declination, not much so I don't worry
much about that. Now I don't do much EME as I don't have any power, but
I've monitored EME and this seems to get me pretty close. I will also be
glad to see what others do to calibrate.
