          tool, i have plenty of locators and i'm sure even a poor man can afford 1. but 512hz. would still require a transmitter and i have some sondes you can tape onto the snake or install on your general with a leader.

          you have my #

            Progressive Electronics Model 501 Tracker II Underground Cable Locator System
            Model 501 Tracker II offers professional performance in wire locating. With its inductive signal application, the Tracker II can be used on active or dead systems. Now you can trace the path and determine the depth of wires and metallic pipes without having to deactivate the systems. The high frequency transmitter provides range up to 4000 feet and depth to 7 feet. The transmitter offers three methods of connection: direct, inductive coupler or inductive antenna. The 32 inch light-weight receiver provides both audible and visual indications of signal strength for accurate identification. Transmitter output and receiver sensitivity are both fully adjustable for maximum accuracy.

            The Model 501 Tracker II includes: transmitter assembly, receiver assembly, inductive coupler (clamp), inductive antenna (built-in), two 8 foot test leads with heavy duty alligator clops and a durable polyethylene case.

            Powerful RF transmitter attaches directly to shielded or unshielded wire, metal conduit, water or gas pipes. 33" T-handled pick-up has visual and audible indication for direction finding and determination of depth. 3" jaw clamp induces tracking signal onto line when direct hookup is not practical. If line is completely buried, an inductive antenna is built into the carrying case that will induce a tracking signal onto a line up to 7' deep.

                    Re: Poor man's locator

                    There is a homemade way to do it with a coil and..... ah he!! I can't remember.

                    Better off giving All Clear a call if you want a good deal & medium accuracy.
