From
Scott Barthelmy at NASA/GSFC <scott@lheamail.gsfc.nasa.gov>
S.D. Barthelmy (GSFC) and T. Sakamoto (GSFC/UMBC)
(on behalf of the Swift-BAT team):
 
Using the full data set from recent telemetry downlinks,
we conclude that Swift-BAT trigger 340734 is not due to a GRB.
This trigger is another outburst from the AXP 1E1547.0-5408
source.
