polling, all seem to be go for vertical

Quote
All five rocket payloads have been checked with the rockets in the horizontal position. Next up, the rockets will be raised to the launch position and vertical payload checks will be conducted.

Poll to conducted vertical checks is complete.

15 minutes and counting (dont think it is for launch though, too early for the window)

Anyone know why they keep fiddling with the launcher azimuths and elevations?

Why did it get to T-0 and nothing happened? Odd

Online Chris Bergin

Nothing on twitter, but aren't we too early?

NASA has set the ATREX mission for launch from Midnight to 3 a.m. EDT, March 21.

Midnight isn't for another 35 mins?

Er, maybe "PT" means "Practice Time"? I don't understand these radio calls but it doesn't seem like they're having trouble with...whatever they're doing does it?
What is the Azimuth that they're changing, the angle of the launchers?
