Neil Armstrong (CDR)

That would be hatch opening.

CapCom

That's what we thought. Thank you much.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

That might be a little later than that, but in other words, start the PREP in about an hour or so.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Houston, Columbia. Copy NOUN 49?

CapCom

Stand by, Columbia.

CapCom

Tranquility Base, Houston. That's fine. We are ready to support you any time, Neil. Over.

CapCom

Break. Columbia, we see the NOUN 49. Stand by.

CapCom

Columbia, Houston. We got the data. We would like a VERB 34. Over.

Michael Collins (CMP)

All right. Stand by one, Charlie, for the next one.

CapCom

Roger, Columbia. Did—How did Tranquility look to you down there? Over.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Well, the area looks smooth, but I was unable to see him. I just picked out a distinguishable crater nearby and marked on it.

Michael Collins (CMP)

It looks like a nice area, though.

CapCom

Hello, Columbia. Houston. I understand you could not see Tranquility. What were you marking on? Over.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Houston, Columbia. I say again, I could not see him. AUTO optics pointed at a spot very close to the coordinates which you gave me, so I picked a tiny crater in that area and marked on it so I will be able to have repeatable data, but I was unable to see him.

CapCom

Hello, Tranquility Base. Houston. On our DPS venting and that fuel problem, our heat exchanger is cleared up. We heard that the ice is melted, and we are in good shape now. Out.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Houston. Tranquility is going to put the track modes in P00 now.

CapCom

Columbia, Houston. We noticed you are maneuvering very close to gimbal lock. I suggest you move back away. Over.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Yes. I am going around it, doing this CMC AUTO maneuvers to the PAD values of roll 270, pitch 101, yaw 45.

CapCom

Roger, Columbia.

Michael Collins (CMP)

How about sending me a fourth gimbal for Christmas.

CapCom

Columbia, Houston. You were unreadable. Say again please.

CapCom

Columbia, Houston. Several items for you. Over.

CapCom

Columbia, Houston. First of all, we'd like a waste water dump to 10 percent on the backside. Secondly, it does not look like we are going to need any plane change at this time, so we will not be uplinking a new REFSMMAT. Third item, I would like all of your CRYO heaters to AUTO, and we are ready for a battery charge, battery BRAVO; it will last about 7 hours. If you should go to sleep, we will be terminating that BATT charge, but at the moment, we can go ahead and start the BATT charge on BATT Bravo. And a final item, for your SM RCS configuration for your rest period, register 1 for the DAP is 11111; DAP register 2, 01100. And your AUTO RCS select switches, quad Alfa, pitch jets on only, quad Bravo all on, quad Charlie and quad Delta all off. Over.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Roger. Dump waste water to 10 percent on the backside. Use prior REFSMMAT, CRYO heaters on to AUTO, battery B charge until I go to sleep. DAP is 11111, 01100. Select quads A pitch only on, C and D all up. Over.

CapCom

Columbia, Houston. Roger.

CapCom

Columbia, Houston. We will have a state vector update for you a little later. We are not prepared with it right now; and on another subject, from Tranquility Base, they are prepared to begin their EVA early. They expect to begin DEPRESS operations in about 3 hours at 108, approximately 108 GET. Over.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Sounds good to me. Tell them to eat some lunch before they go.

CapCom

Columbia, Houston. We'd like your PRD readouts when possible, and we've checked over your EM dump. It all looks okay.

CapCom

Tranquility Base, Houston. Over.

CapCom

Tranquility, Houston. We'd like your PRD readout, and we have double checked your EM dump. It all looks okay. Over.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Roger. Understand our E memory dump was good. CDR's dosimeter is 11014.

CapCom

Roger, Tranquility. Break. Columbia, we would like for you to REACQ with your high gain; attempt a manual lock on. Over.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Houston, Tranquility here. The LMP's readout may possibly be 09017. Over.

CapCom

Tranquility, Houston. Roger. 09017 is an update on your readout.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Columbia's in high gain.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

I'll let you know for sure when it goes to either 12 or 18.

CapCom

Tranquility, Houston. Roger. The medics report your latter reading, 17, appears to be the correct one. Over.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Columbia's in the high gain.
