    Other than just soaping the lines and connectors are there any tips to being able to easily find a leak? Two of the major manufacturers I contacted could offer very little information.

    This should work for leaks where there has been major damage. Google a stage rental company and you can rent a fogger. Tape it to the end of the line and you can usually see the smoke coming out of the line or antenna if it is located there. Some places also sell cans of the stuff. I would imagine that if it is safe for public use that it would not introduce any problems in the antenna or line. Grab your binoculars and look for smoke signals.
