Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Roger. A little closer this time.

Ronald Evans (CAPCOM)

Tranquility, Houston. Readback correct.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Houston, Tranquility. I see what you mean now about the K factor.

Michael Collins (CMP)

This is Columbia. Go ahead. And I'd like to know about this P52 coming up. Is that the one I just completed or do you want a pair of them back to back?

Ronald Evans (CAPCOM)

Columbia, Houston. You do not need to do another P52 unless you want to. Break. And also, Columbia, when you get a chance, request BATT C and the PYRO readouts. Over.

Michael Collins (CMP)

BATT C says 37 volts even. PYRO A, 37. PYRO B, 37.

Ronald Evans (CAPCOM)

Columbia, Houston. Roger. We copy. Thank you.

Michael Collins (CMP)

BATT bus B is 37. BATT bus A is 36, or I'd think the gauge is stuck.

Ronald Evans (CAPCOM)

Roger. And you're looking good to us—to us, Columbia.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Yes sir. Keep it that way.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Columbia is coming up on a VERB 45 ENTER to reset the surface flag.

Ronald Evans (CAPCOM)

Columbia, Houston. Negative. Stand by on the VERB 45.

Michael Collins (CMP)

And a crew status report from Columbia. I figure I got about 5 hours' good sleep, although you guys probably know better than I do.

Ronald Evans (CAPCOM)

Columbia. Roger. We copy.

Ronald Evans (CAPCOM)

Columbia, Houston. We've got a couple more vectors to send up to you. They'll be coming up shortly and then you can do the VERB 45 after you get those in. Over.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Okay. That's fine. Just wanted to make sure that we're both in SYNC on the order.

Ronald Evans (CAPCOM)

Columbia and Tranquility Base, this is Houston. In case you haven't noticed, the MSFN relay is not activated, so I can go ahead and relay anything if you want to talk directly.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Houston, Tranquility. Be advised we've got —

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Coming … on schedule — showing red right now. We just put a VERB 77 in. I believe that there's … let me check here.

Ronald Evans (CAPCOM)

Tranquility Base, Houston. We've got a lot of static down here. Could you say again?

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Roger. We have four out of eight circuit breaker talkbacks indicating red. We still have the circuit breakers out as of right now. I believe at this moment we have just entered VERB 77 on tape 3052 and are ready to proceed with the hot fire. Is it normal to have these four red flags? Over.

Ronald Evans (CAPCOM)

Tranquility Base, Houston. We think that's okay. Go ahead and reset them and press on with the hot fire. Over.

Ronald Evans (CAPCOM)

Columbia, Columbia, Houston. Request P00 and ACCEPT, and we'll send some state vectors up to you.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Here we going P00 and ACCEPT.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Houston, Tranquility. I used Capella in the last sighting, and it's a good ways near the edge. A good ways away from the center of detent 4. I'm wondering if it would pay any to use Alpheratz, star number 1. It might be a little closer. However, it would delay things a little, since I'd have to designate the radar out of the way. Over.

Ronald Evans (CAPCOM)

Tranquility. Roger. We copy. Stand by 1. And, break, break, Columbia. We're having a little trouble getting the stuff in there. Request high gain, pitch minus 20, yaw plus 150. Over.

Ronald Evans (CAPCOM)

And, Tranquility, Houston. We'd prefer to save the time; press on with Capella. Over.

Ronald Evans (CAPCOM)

And, Tranquility, Houston. The RCS check looked mighty fine to us.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

It looks good up here.

Columbia, Columbia, Houston. Over.

Ronald Evans (CAPCOM)

Columbia, Houston. Over.

Ronald Evans (CAPCOM)

Columbia, Houston in the blind—high gain. Pitch minus 20, yaw plus 150.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Houston, Tranquility. Could you give me the fixed portion of the ascent PAD so I can load it in for a P57? Over.

Ronald Evans (CAPCOM)

Tranquility. Roger. Stand by one. We want to wait on that P57 until about TIG minus 50 minutes. Over.

Ronald Evans (CAPCOM)

Columbia, Columbia, Houston. Over.

Ronald Evans (CAPCOM)

Columbia, Columbia, Houston. Over.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Houston, Tranquility. It turns out that detent 4 isn't usable anyway with the yaw that we have, because the Earth appears in both detent 2 and detent 3.

Ronald Evans (CAPCOM)

Tranquility Base, Houston. Roger.

Ronald Evans (CAPCOM)

Columbia, Houston. Over.
