Oftentimes, if the cable is leaking in the upstream, its also leaking in the 
downstream.  Depending on his country's standardized CATV spectrum, there 
may be an analog channel mapped close to our Ch.7 whose aural carrier can be 
demodulated with a general coverage VHF receiver or handie-talkie.  That 
will provide some good clues.
