I sometimes leave a butt set across my 5ESS line and have heard that 3-tone test as well, also around 1am. I believe it's the ALIT, or Automatic Line Insulation Test. If your line is off-hook when it was scheduled, I'm not sure if it's done later, or postponed to the next day. ***** Moderator's Note ***** A.
