FasTrak beeping at SJC Terminal C for no reason

Folks,

Any of you SJC locals who have a FasTrak notice that your transponder beeps for no reason as you pass Terminal C as you exit the airport?

I assume they must be doing some FasTrak testing in case they're preparing to accept FasTrak for parking payment in the new garage. Anyone know for sure?

The most exact location I have is that it's just past terminal C almost immediately after the final set of overhead airport signs that direct traffic into the proper lane for exiting the airport.

I would guess that the radio receiver they use to track where the buses are is triggering your transponder.

Update: I did notice that my transponder beeped just before I entered the terminal A garage and again down past where the terminal C baggage claim used to be. Both times it was when I drove under one of those transponders that I'm guessing tracks the buses.

Funny to see this thread come back from the dead. SJC doesn't even have a Terminal C anymore!
