Radio trigger from Calumet issue

Just wondering if anyone has seen this issue before .
I was shooting an event today at a nightclub using my radio triggers with canon 420 ex off camera ( I use this setup regularly ) and noticed that there was a 5 second or more delay after each fire . I was using the flash at 1/16 power, had brand new / freshly charged batteries in each piece of equipment and when testing the flash directly on camera it fired in quick bursts with no delay whatsoever.
This event took place in Covent Garden and as soon as I was done I went next door to Calumet to show them the problem and lo and behold the issue was gone, this is after the flash has been used extensively for 3 hours . Fired in quick succession with no problems. Now I am completely at a loss of what it could be.
Would love to hear if anyone else had this issue ever ?
