Mark a location for the first guying foundation on the circle line.
- On the Northern Hemisphere, to the East from the mast concrete foundation.
- On the Southern Hemisphere, to the West from the mast concrete foundation.
Mark also the opposite side of the circle. That will be your next center point.
From the new center point, use the string as compass and draw another circle to the
Mark the places where the 2 circles cross each other. They are the locations for the other 2 guying foundations.
