Owen Garriott (CAPCOM)

Apollo 11, Houston. We'd like for you to go ahead and put your S band antenna OMNI to OMNI and OMNI B. Over.

Owen Garriott (CAPCOM)

Apollo 11, Houston. How do you read me through Honeysuckle now? Over.

Michael Collins (CMP)

You're loud and clear. Over.

Owen Garriott (CAPCOM)

Very good. Reading you better now. And did you copy we'd appreciate going S band OMNI and OMNI B at this time? Over.

Michael Collins (CMP)

That's the configuration we're in.

Michael Collins (CMP)

I'll say you “Purple” people keep funny hours.

No contact for 9:38:47
Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Good morning, 11. This is Houston. Over.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Okay. Crew status report: 88 and 8.5.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Roger. 88 and 8.5. When you're ready, we've got a small flight plan update for you.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Houston, we're ready to copy.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Roger. At about 148 hours, if you've not already done so, a CO2 filter change, and the H2 purge line heater on 20 minutes before the O2 and H2 purge. At 148 hours, we'd like you to initiate a charge on battery Alfa instead of at 151 hours, and leave the charge on until we notify you further. At 150 hours GET, waste water dump to 10 percent. We do plan to burn midcourse correction 5. It will be an RCS burn about 5 feet per second at about the nominal time in the flight plan. Over.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Roger. Understand. We'll be accomplishing the filter change shortly, the purge line heater is on ***, O2 and H2 purge shortly, and at 148 will initiate a charge on battery A until you notify us further. At 150 hours, waste water dump to 10 percent. And we're looking forward to midcourse correction 5 at about 5 feet per second at the nominal time. Over.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Roger. I've got your consumables update, if you're ready to copy.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Okay. At GET of 147 plus 00, RCS total minus 2.0 percent, which is about minus 14 pounds. Alfa minus 12.0, Bravo plus 10.0, minus 3.0, minus 2.0. Hydrogen total minus 1.5 pounds, O2 total plus 20 pounds. Over.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Roger. I copy, and our onboard readouts: Alfa, *** 2 percent, Bravo 54 percent, Cocoa's 64 percent, Delta 61 percent. Over.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Roger, 11. Would you read that quad Alfa again, please, Buzz. You're cutting out. It may be—are you operating on VOX? Over.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Negative. Alfa is 53 percent. Over.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

11, from down here on telemetry, all your systems look to be in good shape.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Apollo 11, this is Houston. Over.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Roger. Would you ask Buzz to check his biomedical TM sensors for a loose or dried out sensor? We're getting an erratic electrocardiogram reading. That would be one of the three sternal leads. Over.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Apollo 11, this is Houston. Say again your last, please.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Apollo 11, this is Houston. Stand by for a Mark leaving the lunar sphere of influence.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

You're leaving the lunar sphere of influence. Over.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Roger. Is Bill Shaffer down there?

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Negative. But we've got a highly qualified team on in his stead.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Roger. I wanted to hear him explain it again to the press conference.

Michael Collins (CMP)

That's old Apollo 8 junk, but tell him the spacecraft gave a little jump as it went through the …

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Okay. I'll pass it on to him. Thanks a lot, and Dave Reed is sort of burying his head in his arms right now.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Those guys down there in the press room did a pretty good job this morning.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

We don't want them to give up yet, though.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

No. They'll hang in there for about another 47 hours or so.

Bruce McCandless (CAPCOM)

Apollo 11, this is Houston. If you're not busy now, I can read you up the morning news.

Buzz Aldrin (LMP)

Okay. We're all listening.
