the beep has to be audible, and when they hear it (every 10-15 
seconds I believe is the mandated time frame) they'll simply ask: "Is 
this conversation being recorded?", to which you must (legally) say 
"Yes", at which point they'll release the call.

Having been the guy in the call center pushing "RLS", I can say that 
with near certainty. :)
