      The launch did take place, at 0530 yesterday morning. However, we did not receive any packet data from the payload. The ground station was unable to capture anything, as well as I tried from my RF lab on the facility without success. This morning it was semi-determined that the APRS payload may have never been turned on before flight. Still being investigated as to why this might have happened.
