As of this email  19:40  2014-08-17.  Times from aprs.fi  CDT (Chicago time  UTC-5) 
 
B-63, or M0XER-3 on APRS. Was last heard from just south of Seoul S. Korea at 2014-08-10 03:05:15
  http://aprs.fi/#!mt=roadmap&z=9&call=a%2FM0XER-3&timerange=604800&tail=604800  Launched 8th July.
 
B-64, or M0XER-4 on APRS. Was last heardf from in Central Alaska:
  http://aprs.fi/#!mt=roadmap&z=4&call=a%2FM0XER-4&timerange=604800&tail=604800   14-08-15 06:20:19 Launched 12th July.
  Last heard 2014-08-15 06:20:19 
 
B-66, or M0XER-6 on APRS.  Finally re-appeared over the southern Yukon today, Sunday:
   http://aprs.fi/#!mt=roadmap&z=9&call=a%2FM0XER-6&timerange=604800&tail=604800   2014-08-17 10:33:51 
And last heard 2014-08-17 14:06:30 
However it didn't appear to be near the limit of radio range of VY1RM-1 in Whitehourse.  It should have been in radio range for another 200-250 miles or so.  Launched 19th July.
 
These reminds me of the Kingston Trio song he MTA.. "DId he ever return, no he never returned..."
