Progress M-19M Makes It To The ISS Despite Antenna Failure

The Progress M-19M has successfully reached the International Space Station after a navigational antenna failed to deploy immediately after orbit insertion. The crew inside the Station were ready to takeover manual control of the Progress if needed however all went well with the automated systems.

Contact and capture occurred at 12:25 UTC on April 26th 2013. Hard mate was successfully confirmed at 12:34 UTC after the crew confirmed they had not heard any grinding noises.
