Default XTS 5000 problem

I have a couple of XTS 5000s that will intermittently give a proceed tone during a call. You can push the PTT button and get a proceed tone, but then you'll get another one a few seconds later, and another, and another. They don't do it every call, in fact, they seem to be ok more often than not. They've got me stumped. They're on frequency, receive sensitivity is great, they don't seem to be coming unlocked. Any ideas?


These are 800mHz P25 trunking...

What's the condition of your battery?

Wonky battery or bad ptt switch. Try wiggling the battery and see if it beeps. Aftermarket batteries are notorious for bad connections

I would go with a bad PTT switch. If the battery connection is interrupted, the radio will reboot and the radio would bonk until it affiliated and would then give the TPT.
