Ronald Evans (CAPCOM)

Eagle—Columbia, Roger.

Michael Collins (CMP)

My hatch is removed. You can open yours, and I'll start passing stuff up to you.

Michael Collins (CMP)

No. Stand by one, first.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Okay.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Yes, everything is going fine. Be with you in just a second.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Go ahead, Houston, Eagle here.

Ronald Evans (CAPCOM)

Roger. Any time prior to jettison there, we'd like an AGS to PGNS align: 400 plus 30 000. Over.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Okay. Any particular attitude you would like the PGNS in when we do that?

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

No. We're not getting any. Could you give us some course align gimbal angles to move the PGNS to, and then we will align the AGS to the PGNS. Over.

Ronald Evans (CAPCOM)

Roger. Eagle. We concur. Stand by on the gimbal angles. And also, Eagle, while we've got the command module direct O2 on there, there's a possibility that your cabin relief might relieve if we get up around cabin pressure of about 5.4 or 5.5.

Ronald Evans (CAPCOM)

Roger. All we are trying to do is get PGNS and AGS aligned together. Doesn't make any difference on the gimbal angle.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Okay. We are pretty close to 000. Is that all right?

Ronald Evans (CAPCOM)

Eagle, that's beautiful.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Now, you might want to take into account what will happen when the CSM maneuvers to jettison attitude.

Ronald Evans (CAPCOM)

Eagle, Houston. We don't care what—All we are trying to do is get a drift rate and see how long it takes them to drift apart on the thing after you jettison.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Okay. Will we be jettisoning at about this attitude? That's okay. I'll align the AGS with the PGNS. You can tell me a little later if you need some help.

Ronald Evans (CAPCOM)

Eagle, Houston. That's fine.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Houston, Columbia. You want me to roll over and get high gain or anything like that?

Ronald Evans (CAPCOM)

Columbia, Houston. I can give you some REACQ angles for the high gain on the LM jettison attitude. Then you can go there whenever you want to. The angles are pitch minus 50, and yaw zero.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Houston, Columbia. Say again the jettison roll, pitch, and yaw, please.

Ronald Evans (CAPCOM)

Columbia, Houston. Roll zero, pitch 025, and yaw zero. Over.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Roger. Understand roll zero, pitch 025, yaw zero.

Michael Collins (CMP)

… in progress. We've moving. Houston.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Roger. It doesn't appear as though the red hose is going to be much of a competitor to the leading vacuum cleaner brands. Over.

Ronald Evans (CAPCOM)

There's a little noise there, Buzz. Say again.

Ronald Evans (CAPCOM)

Roger. Just a reminder to be sure to zero the AGS errors before you enable the AGS attitude hold there after you get in burn attitude.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Roger. You mean SEP attitude?

Michael Collins (CMP)

Houston, how do you read Columbia on high gain now?

Ronald Evans (CAPCOM)

Hey, Columbia. Houston. Mighty fine; loud and clear.

Ronald Evans (CAPCOM)

And Eagle, Houston. Your steerable antenna angles for jettison attitude are—Over.

Ronald Evans (CAPCOM)

Roger. Pitch 165, yaw 68. Over.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Roger. Pitch 165, yaw 68.

Ronald Evans (CAPCOM)

Eagle, Houston. Correct.
