Apollo 11, this is Houston. Readback correct. Out.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Apollo 11, this is Houston. We've completed the uplink; the computer is yours. You can go back to BLOCK. Would you verify that you have extended the probe? Over.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Roger. That's verified; the probe is extended.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Roger. About 2 minutes to LOS on this stateside pass. AOS Canaries at 1 50 13. Over.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Okay. On your service module RCS quad Bravo package temperature, we're showing it running a little low. Looks like about 20 degrees low—lower than the rest of the quads. Would you confirm that your RCS heater switch for quad Bravo is in PRIMARY? Over.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

You're correct. It was not in PRIMARY. It was off. It's on now. Thank you.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Apollo 11, this is Houston. Over.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Houston, Apollo 11. Go ahead.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Roger. We've checked over the spacecraft and the launch vehicle guidance. They're both looking to be in good shape. We estimate you have better than a 99-percent probability of a guidance cut-off on the launch vehicle, so things are apparently holding in very well. For your information, MILA received approximately 1 minute of a usable TV picture, so apparently the system is working. And you're a little over a minute from LOS at Canary; AOS Tananarive is 2 hours 9 minutes and 18 seconds. Over.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Roger. We like those 99 numbers. Thank you.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Apollo 11, this is Houston through Tananarive. How do you read?

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Apollo 11, this is Houston standing by through Tananarive.

Goddard voice, Houston COMM TECH NET 1.

MSFN

Goddard voice, reading you loud and clear.

CommTech

Roger. We cannot raise Tananarive.

CommTech

Houston COMM TECH, Tananarive.

CommTech

Roger, Tananarive. Are you receiving CAP COMM's voice, and are you uplinking it?

CommTech

Negative.

CommTech

Roger. Monitor again and I'll tell CAP COMM to make one more transmission.

CommTech

Roger.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Roger. Reading you loud and clear.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Houston, Apollo 11. We have the PYRO's armed.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

This is Houston. Roger. Out.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Apollo 11, this is Houston. One minute to LOS Tananarive; AOS at Carnarvon 02 25 30.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Apollo 11, this is Houston through Carnarvon. Radio check. Over.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Roger, Houston through Carnarvon. Apollo 11. Loud and clear.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Roger. You're coming in very loud and very clear, here. Out.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Apollo 11, this is Houston. You are GO for TLI. Over.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Apollo 11, this is Houston. Over.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Roger. We'll be coming within range of the ARIA aircraft coverage, here, in about 1 minute. They're going to try uplinking both on S-band and on VHF this time. So if you turn your—make sure your S-band volume is turned up, we'd appreciate it. And we believe that we'll have continuous coverage from now on through the TLI burn. Over.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Apollo 11, Apollo 11, this is Houston through ARIA 4. Radio check. Over.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Houston, we read you strength 4 and a little scratchy.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Roger. We're reading you strength 5, readability about 3. Should be quite adequate.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Apollo 11, Apollo 11, this is Houston. We're reading you readability about 3, strength 5. Sounds pretty good. Over.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Roger. We've got a little static in the background now.
