Hello WayneLed:
Another way is to blow smoke through the duct with the vaccum cleaner. Or, if its metal duct, you could run an electrician's fish tape through it.

Welcome to the site, as this thread is very old it is likely to late to help.

Interesting stuff until you tell people to use duct tape on ducts, aluminium tape is what you should be using.
