Stupid antenna question

Silly question. Getting AS ready for the season. Cranked up the antenna and fired up the TV. Pointed it to the North, general direction of largest major city. What portion of the antenna should be aimed in that direction? It is the standard AS antenna. One large and three small cross members attached to a vertical pole. The arrow on the base crank is pointed in that direction but the antenna seams to be pointed westerly????

You want the three small cross members pointed to the stations.
