I saw a cable guy searching for underground conduit by using a T handle made
from hardened steel.  Of course, this only works in regular, damp earth.

I'm getting ready to trench in a cable line to a new tower, and before I do,
I'd like to mark where the existing cables are buried, particularly near the
shack where they all come together.
Any ideas what the most reliable/cheapest way to do this is?
Obviously, I will be digging by hand when I get in the "crossfire"
of existing cables, but I know that you can do a lot of damage with an
errant spade in just one swing.
