Michael Collins (CMP)

I'll make a small trim maneuver.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Mike, what's going to be your pitch angle at SEP?

Michael Collins (CMP)

Is that close enough for you or do you want it to a couple of decimal places?

Michael Collins (CMP)

I think you've got a fine looking flying machine there, Eagle, despite the fact you're upside down.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Okay, Eagle. One minute until TIG. You guys take care.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Houston, Columbia. My DSKY is reading 4.9, in X, 5.0 …, make it and EMS 105.4. Over.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Roger. Copy. Columbia, it looks good to us. Over.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Columbia, Houston. We'd like you to terminate average G. Over.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

You're going right down U.S. 1, Mike.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Eagle, Columbia. At your convenience, I would like to switch over to VHF ranging modes.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Roger. Let's go to VHF ranging now.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Eagle, Columbia. I am reading you loud and scratchy. Neil is not coming through too well on his VOX. Could you be quiet for 15 seconds while I get this locked on.

Michael Collins (CMP)

I've got a solid lock on. I have you at 0.27 miles.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Eagle, Houston. We've got a state vector for you. We'd like P00 and DATA. Over.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Columbia, Houston. We have a CSM rescue PAD if you are ready to copy. Over.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Roger, Mike. Phasing TIG 103 40 0000, TPI for PDI less that 10, 105 12 3000, TPI for PDI greater than 10, 107 11 3000. Over.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Roger. TIG's follow: phasing 103 40, PDI less than 10, 105 12 30 more than 10, 107 11 30. Over.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Eagle, Houston. When you are ready to copy, I have a lunar surface data PAD for you. Over.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

We've got the load in, Eagle. You can go back updata link OFF. Over.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Columbia, Houston. At your convenience we'd like P00 and ACCEPT. We have a couple of state vectors for you. Over.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Okay. Going to P00 and ACCEPT, and I just got some unexplained roll thruster activity. I might have bumped the hand controller.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Roger. We will look at it. Out

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

And Eagle is ready to copy lunar surface data PAD.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Roger, Buzz. Starting with the T2, T2 TIG: 102 54 2900 103 51 5600 106 37 3500 109 10 0000. In the remarks: T2 occurs at PDI plus 2126. T3 time—correction T3, T3 TIG: 104 39 4100 001 58 1500 001 58 5400. NOUN 11: 105 36 2300 107 11 3000. Ready for your readback. Over.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Roger. T2: 102 54 2900 103 51 5600 106 37 3500 109 10 0000, T2 is PDI plus 2126. T3: 104 39 4100 001 58 1500 001 58 5400 105 36 2300 107 11 3000. Over.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Roger. Good readback, Eagle. Out.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Would you put your tracking light on, please?

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Columbia, Houston. We've got the load in. You can go back to BLOCK. Over.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

That's affirmative, Columbia.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Okay. Thank you, Houston.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Mike, you want to give us a Mark when you're right at 7 miles—I mean seven tenths of a mile?

Expand selection up Contract selection down Close
Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Okay. We just got seven tenths on the radar.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Yes. I'm oscillating between 0.69 and seven tenths.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Very good. We've got 4200 on the … meter.

Michael Collins (CMP)

I'm steady on 70 now. Yes. I read you sort of scratchy, but I read you.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Houston, Apollo—or Houston, Columbia. Over.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Roger. Go, Columbia. Over.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Roger. I still need a DOI P76 PAD, and a PDI 1 plus 12 P76 PAD sometime at your convenience.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Columbia, Houston. DOI P76 PAD, if you're ready to copy. Over.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Roger, Mike. NOUN 80—correction, NOUN 84: minus 00758, plus all zeros, plus 00098; NOUN 33: 101 36 1400, and stand by for the PDI plus 12.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Columbia, Houston, with the PDI plus 12 NOUN 84, if you're ready to copy.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Roger. NOUN 84: plus 01223, minus all zeros, plus 01889; NOUN 33: 102 44 2700, PDI plus 12 burn time is 046, burn time for DOI is 030. Ready for your readback. Over.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Roger. DOI P76: 84 is minus 00758, all balls, plus 00098, at 101 36 1400; plus 01223, minus all balls, plus 01889, 102 44 2700; burn time 46 and 30 seconds.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Roger. One error, Columbia, on the TIG for DOI; seconds was 1407. Over.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Columbia, Houston. We'd like you to turn off your rotational direct—rotational control power direct number 2 off. Over.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Columbia, Houston. On those P76's, a friendly reminder from your FIDO: add half the burn time to the TIG. Over.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Columbia, Houston. We've lost data with Eagle. Will you please have him select aft OMNI? Over.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Eagle, this is Columbia. Houston would like you to select aft OMNI.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Roger. I got it now. Houston, you reading Eagle now on aft OMNI?

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

That's affirmative, Eagle. Reading you five by.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Columbia, Houston. We'll have LOS at 101 28. AOS for you 102 15. Over.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Eagle, Houston. It appeared to us when you were doing the P52, maneuvering the S band, the high gain went into the stop. Verify that both S band breakers are in. Over.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Roger. I think I'd gone up to 90.0 before it went there. The one on this side is in and I'll check the other later.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Eagle, Houston. You are GO for DOI. Over.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Roger. GO for DOI. Do you have LOS and AOS times?

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Roger. For you LOS at 101 28. AOS 102 16. Over.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

And, Buzz, S band steerable update for you on the angles at AOS: 219 and yaw 30. Over.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Roger. That's in the flight plan. Thank you.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Houston, Columbia. How are all the systems looking?

Michael Collins (CMP)

Just wanted to get a systems check from you sometime prior to LOS.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Houston, Eagle. You can—Torquing angles NOUN 93 on four zeros and a 3 are minus 00292, plus 00289, minus 00094.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Roger. Copy. Stand by. Roger, Eagle. You can torque it. Over.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Columbia, Houston. Your systems are looking good going over the hill. Approximately 7 minutes to LOS.
