Michael Collins (CMP)

On our next pass, I'd appreciate the S band relay mode. Over.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Roger. We're working on that. There haven't been any transmissions from Tranquility Base since we last talked to you. We cannot give you a full S band relay without being assured of high gain antenna. We're working on the partial relay for you. Over.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Okay. Understand, Bruce. Thank you very much.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Columbia, this is Houston. Approximately 2 minutes to LOS. All your systems are looking good from down here. Over.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Does it look to you like the 240 controller is properly controlling the glycol evaporator outlet TEMP? It locks all right up here.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Roger, Columbia. During this pass on the front side, it looked okay to us.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Houston, Tranquility Base.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Okay. We are on about the middle of page 28, Surface—28.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Roger, Tranquility. We copy

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

I think we'd … to put …

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Tranquility Base, this is Houston. Over.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Roger. Go ahead, Houston.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Roger, Tranquility. We're coming up in about 6 minutes on GET of 108. If you'd like to start your event timer, we can give you a hack at 108 00. Over.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Houston, Tranquility. We're ready to start with the electrical checkout. We're going to S band modulate FM. Over.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Roger. Tranquility, this is Houston. We copy. Go ahead with the FM. And we missed the mark at 108. Do you want us to try and give you one at 108 05? Over.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

I think we've got the timer going. We've got 1 minute and 30 seconds.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Roger. We copy, and you're in SYNC with us.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Feed it, or disconnect, or what?

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Connect PLSS electrical umbilical to PGA.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Let me *** up tight *** have to *** up straight *** up. Got her about ***

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Fastest VOX in the west.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Mark. All right. Okay.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Well, we've got antennas down and *** not real good, is it? Okay. Yours is up. We'll put my antenna up.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Okay. I think that's going to be better.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

You read me all right now?

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Okay. That sounds pretty good.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

I guess it's a combination of the volume and the antenna. May have been just the volume that was way up too high. Why don't you try stowing it again; see if that makes any difference.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

All right. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. That—That sounds pretty good.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Better keep it pretty close to your mouth, though.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Okay. Open up your audio circuit breaker, and disconnect the LM COMM cable.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Columbia, Columbia, this is Houston. Over.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Houston, Columbia on the high gain. How do you read ?

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Roger, Columbia. Reading you loud and clear on the high gain. We have enabled the one way MSFN relay that you requested. The crew of Tranquility Base is currently donning PLSS's. The LMP has his PLSS on, COMM checks out, and the CDR is checking his COMM out now. Over.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Sounds good. Thank you kindly.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Houston, Columbia. I tweaked the platform up on the back side. I have a P52 option 3 when you're ready to copy the data.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Roger. Stars 43 and 44: star angle difference 4 balls 1, NOUN 93 plus 000 —

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Audio circuit breaker CLOSED.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

All right, on your panel, VHF A, OFF; VHF B, OFF.

Michael Collins (CMP)

— 00166, minus 00022, and the —

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

All right, RCU PTT to MAIN.

Michael Collins (CMP)

— time is 107 30 38. Over.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Columbia, this is Houston. Copy star angle difference of 4 balls 1; NOUN 93, plus 00057 —

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

PLSS mode switch to B.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

— plus 00166, minus 00022 —

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

— time of 107 30 38. Over.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Roger. Are you reading Tranquility Base now?

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Okay. You've got an O and a P.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

What is your O2 quantity, by the way?

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

O2 quantity is about 91.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Okay, now. I'm going to mode select B.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Okay. How do you read me?

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

You're loud and clear.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

I got another warning tone. Go.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Both. That's mode select AR.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Didn't get a warning tone.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Okay. One antenna is out. Verify PLSS O2 bottle pressure greater than 85. ***

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Do you have voice with ***

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Houston, Tranquility. How do you read ? Over.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Neil, Neil, this is Houston through Tranquility. Radio check. Over.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Roger. Houston, this is Neil. How do you read?

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Neil, this is Houston. We're reading you loud and clear. Break, break. Buzz, this is Houston through Tranquility. Over.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Roger, Houston. This is Buzz through Tranquility. How do you read? Over.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

We're reading you loud and clear, Buzz. Out.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

*** and are you getting a signal on the TV? Over.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

That's affirmative, Neil. The data that we're receiving looks good and we are receiving SYNC pulses and a black signal on TV.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Okay. You'll find that the area around the ladder is in a complete dark shadow so we're going to have some problem with TV, but I'm sure you will see the—You'll get a picture from the lighted horizon …

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

This is Houston. We copy, and right toward the end of your transmission after you mentioned lighted horizon, you trailed off down into the noise level, Neil. Over.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Columbia, this is Houston. Are you reading Tranquility all right on the relay? Over.

Michael Collins (CMP)

I believe so. I haven't heard anything fairly lately, and it's breaking up. But up until about 3 minutes ago, I was reading them loud and clear.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Roger. Sounds like you're getting it all.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Thank you.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Tranquility Base, this is Houston. We request you open the TV circuit breaker at the present time. We've had it on about 15 minutes now with the MESA closed. Over.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Houston, do you read ***

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Neil, Neil, this is Houston. I can hear you trying to transmit; however, your transmission is breaking up. Over.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Buzz, Buzz, this is Houston. Do you read? Over.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Roger, Houston. This is Buzz. How do you read? Over.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Roger. You're coming through loud and clear, Buzz. It's a beautiful signal.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Neil's got his antenna up now. Let's see if he comes through any better now.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Okay. Houston, this is Neil. How do you read?

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Neil, this is Houston. Reading you beautifully.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

(Static) My antenna's scratching the roof.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

We copy, your antenna scratching the roof. Roger.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

They hear everything but that.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Houston, this is Tranquility. We're standing by for a GO for cabin DEPRESS. Over.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Tranquility Base, this is Houston. You are GO for cabin depressurization. GO for cabin depressurization.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

And the descent water valve is closed.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Verify cabin fan number 1 circuit breaker open.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

*** Over, PLSS fan number 1 breaker,

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

We'll have to pull that one out. ***

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Columbia, this is Houston. Your LM line of sight COMM acquisition with the Tranquility Base is 108 plus 29. LOS is 108 plus 42. Over.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Suit circuits relief valve to AUTO.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Suit gas diverter valve to EGRESS.

Michael Collins (CMP)

I'm going over to … I'll pick you up on OMNI C or D.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

*** ECS caution light and water separation light ON. Takes a while for the water separator. Maybe.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

I don't understand … Suit fan number 1 circuit breaker opened.
