Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Roger. We put our—our roll for MSFN track in on the wrong side. Going to continue rolling around until we get high gain here. And, we'll delete the—the pitch that was scheduled after the TVC check.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Roger. We put the wrong sign in —

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

— for the roll correction to get MSFN high gain, and we're continuing rolling around to get the proper attitude for high gain at this time. We will delete the pitch maneuver that was scheduled subsequent to—subsequent to the TV check since we already have those pictures.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Roger. We copy. And we recommend that you go ahead and complete your TVC test on board. If you have problems, we'll talk to you when you get around further into the high gain antenna attitude. Over.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Houston, how do you read on high gain?

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Oh, loud and clear on high gain, 11.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Roger. We're proceeding.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Apollo 11, this is Houston. We observed your gimbal test down here, and it looked good to us. Over.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Roger. It looked good here.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

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

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Roger. And your systems are looking good from down here.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Yes. Looks good up here too, Bruce.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Apollo 11, this is Houston. Over.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Roger. Go ahead Houston, Apollo 11.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

11, this is Houston. You are GO for LOI. Over.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

And we're showing about 10 minutes and 30 seconds to LOS. I would like to remind you to enable the BD roll on the AUTO RCS switches. Over.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Roger. And confirm you want PCM low going over the hill. Over.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

If you want to, I'll put it back to high until just before LOS. Over.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Negative, 11. Low is okay for now. Over.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Houston, do you want to give me a time check, please?

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Roger. I'll give you a Mark at 13 minutes and 30 seconds to ignition.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Okay. And then a GET, please.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

I'll give you a time hack on the GET at 75 hours 37 minutes and I'll try that bias at about a second and a half to allow for the time of flight.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

And I'll give you a time hack on time to ignition at 12 minutes to ignition. Over.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Stand by for a Mark at TIG minus 12.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

You were right on, Bruce. Thank you.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Apollo 11, this is Houston. All your systems are looking good going around the corner, and we'll see you on the other side. Over.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Roger. Out.
