According to the specification the random value has to change on every

  a random reference which is drawn randomly from a uniform probability
  distribution for every new transmission.

In the TSM30 firmware this is done by having a table with random values
and an index into the table which is initialised to a random value when
the Immediate Assignment Procedure is started and incremented with every
random number taken for a retransmission. The table has 32 values because
the random reference is not larger than 5 bits.
