Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

And, Houston, we got a 500 alarm early in the program. Went to DESCENT 1, proceeded on it, and we're back at AUTO again. Over.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Roger. We saw that, Buzz. Thank you much. Out.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

All right. I say again—Okay. That wasn't an alarm; that was a code. Okay.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Eagle, Houston. We recommend you yaw 10 right. It will help us on the high gain signal strength. Over.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Eagle, Houston. If you read, you're GO for powered descent. Over.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Eagle, this is Columbia. They just gave you a GO for powered descent.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Columbia, Houston. We've lost them on the high gain again. Would you please—We recommend they yaw right 10 degrees and reacquire.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Eagle, this is Columbia. You're GO for PDI and they recommend you yaw right 10 degrees and try the high gain again.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Eagle, you read Columbia?

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Eagle, Houston. We read you now. You're GO for PDI. Over.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Roger. Understand. AELD control circuit breakers. DECA GIMBAL AC—closed?

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

DECA GIMBAL AC—closed? Circuit breaker? COMMAND OVERRIDE—off? GIMBAL ENABLE? RATE SCALE—25.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Eagle, Houston. Your alignment is GO on the AGS. On my Mark, 3 30 until ignition.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Roger. Copy. Thrust translation—four jets—Balance couple—ON. TTCA throttle—MINIMUM. Throttle—AUTO CDR. Prop button—RESET. Prop button. Okay. ABORT/ABORT STAGE—RESET. ATT CONTROL—three of them to MODE CONTROL. Okay, MODE CONTROL is set. AGS is reading 400 plus 1. Standing by for …

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Okay. Sequence camera coming on.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Eagle, Houston. If you'd like to try high gain, pitch 212, yaw 37. Over.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Roger. I think I've got you on high gain now.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Say again the angles, though.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

I'll set them in to use them before we yaw around.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Roger. Pitch 212, yaw plus 37.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

… 10 … 10 percent …

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Columbia, Houston. We've lost them. Tell them to go aft OMNI. Over.

Michael Collins (CMP)

They've lost you. Use the OMNI's again.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

I'll leave it in SLEW. Relay to us. See if they have got me now. I've got good signal strength in SLEW.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Okay. You should have him now, Houston.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Eagle, we've got you now. It's looking good. Over.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

— descent looks good.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Eagle, Houston. Everything is looking good here. Over.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Eagle, Houston. After yaw around, angles: S band pitch, minus 9, yaw plus 18.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

AGS and PNGS agree very closely.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Beta ARM. Altitudes are a little high.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Houston. I'm getting a little fluctuation in the AC voltage now.
