Magnetic Declination for Silver City = 9° 48' E changing by 0° 6' W/year  (July 1, 2009)
Declination Info from NOAA.
If the mounting pole/arm is not perfectly vertical and plumb, the calculated numbers will be of little use for initial setup. Use of a conventional compass requires use of the calculated number that has already been corrected for magnetic deviation (relative to magnetic north).
