Of all the things this reflector may be, 'crowded' doesn't come to my mind.

I would enjoy and perhaps learn from reading responses posted here.

I have a few towers scattered over 2 acres in the back yard. All have  coax
runs buried in PVC. I'm planning another antenna out  amongst them. I have a
general idea where all the runs are buried but not to the exact inch. I can
just start digging  lightly to find the PVC but that's a long process. Is it
possible to use a metal detector? Something like the beachcomers use.The PVC
is about 4''-6''  below the surface. Frost line is not a problem in the Tn
delta.  Has anyone used one to find coax? 
Is there more than BuryFlex on the market? I just want to consider what will
be best. This will  be an HF run so no worry about VHF/UHF losses.
Please contact me off reflector to make it less crowded.
