Ronald Evans (CAPCOM)

Eagle, Houston. Aft OMNI, low bit rate, an we'll see you at 127 plus 51.

Ronald Evans (CAPCOM)

Eagle and Columbia, Houston. Standing by.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Roger. We're stationkeeping.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Okay, Mike. I'll get—try to get in position here, then you got it.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

How does the roll attitude look?

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

I'll stop. Matter of fact, I can stop right here if you like that.

Ronald Evans (CAPCOM)

Eagle, Houston. Middle gimbal. And you might pass to Columbia, we don't have him yet.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Key moment Eagle meets up with Columbia in lunar orbit: I'm not going to do a thing, Mike. I'm just letting her hold in ATTITUDE HOLD.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Okay. We're all yours. Roger.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Okay. Okay, I have thrusters B3 and C4 safetied.

Michael Collins (CMP)

I'm pumping up cabin pressure.

Michael Collins (CMP)

That was a funny one. You know, I didn't feel it shock, and I thought things were pretty steady. I went to RETRACT there, and that's when all hell broke loose. Were you guys—did it appear to you to be—that you were jerking around quite a bit during the retrack cycle?

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Yes. It seemed to happen at the time I put the plus X thrust to it, and apparently it wasn't centered, because somehow or other I accidentally got off in attitude and then the attitude hold system started firing.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Yes. I was sure busy there for a couple of seconds.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Are you hearing me all right? I got a horrible squeal.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Yes. I agree with that, but we hear you okay. Over.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Houston, Apollo 11. Over.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Roger. I'm supposed to adjust the oxygen flow in this thing to six tenths of a pound per hour, but being as how this transducer is not working right, could you give me an updated number?

Ronald Evans (CAPCOM)

Affirmative. You want to go ahead and adjust your O2 flow until it just goes off the peg, and then crank the direct O2 valve back down about 5 degrees. Over.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Boy, you were really waiting for that one, weren't you? Okay, Ron. Thank you.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Houston, I did that, and I believe we are flowing oxygen, but the gage is just pegged FULL SCALE LOW.

Ronald Evans (CAPCOM)

Roger. That's fine. That's what we expect.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Okay. I'm going to go ahead with the tunnel leak check.

Ronald Evans (CAPCOM)

Columbia, Houston. I have a new LM weight for you whenever you're ready to copy.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Not right now, Ron. Remind me of it later, would you please?

Michael Collins (CMP)

Houston, Apollo 11. I let P47 run longer than I should. I may have deteriorated our state vector slightly.

Ronald Evans (CAPCOM)

Roger, Apollo 11. That's okay. We'll see later.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Houston, Apollo 11. Go ahead with your DAP up, please.

Ronald Evans (CAPCOM)

Roger. Your LM weight, 5785. For an R1 we'd like to have 61102, R2 01111. Use BD roll. Over.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Roger. I'm configured now at … for BD roll, and I have thrusters C4 and B3 turned off, and I copy register 1 61102 01111 and LM weight 5785. Thank you.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Houston, Columbia has completed the leak check, and proceeding with opening the hatch dump valve.

Ronald Evans (CAPCOM)

Roger, Columbia. Understand you're doing the leak check. I missed anything after that.

Michael Collins (CMP)

I say the leak check is complete, and I'm proceeding with opening the hatch dump valve.

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.

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.
