Why not use an antenna analyzer (MFJ?) ... you can set it to 
any frequency you want.  I would put a fixed 10 to 20 dB pad 
between it and the device under test and document signal levels 
before any problem (put it in your documentation book).  That 
would allow you to very quickly note any significant change 
in the system.
