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.

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)

Columbia, Houston.

Ronald Evans (CAPCOM)

Roger, Mike. You want to tweak the O2 flow up just a bit there?

Michael Collins (CMP)

Okay. Coming up. Houston, do you have any preferences as to what you want us to do with the probe? Over.

Ronald Evans (CAPCOM)

Columbia, Houston. Stand by one.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Okay. Eagle says they've got a place for it inside there, so no problem.

Ronald Evans (CAPCOM)

Roger. That's all we were assuming.

Ronald Evans (CAPCOM)

Roger. Neil, it looks like your steerable's good. You can put your track mode to slew and high bit rate, please. Over.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Okay. Track mode to slew and high bit rate.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Okay. Stand by just one, please.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Okay. Shoot them on down.

Ronald Evans (CAPCOM)

Roger. Neil, just a reminder again, the ACA out of detent to zero; the AGS out of there just in case you go to ATTITUDE HOLD shortly.

Michael Collins (CMP)

You say you wanted the probe now?

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Houston, Eagle. Go ahead.

Ronald Evans (CAPCOM)

Roger. That ACA out of detent didn't quite do it because the mode control switches were off. Request guidance control to PGNS and then back to AGS, and that will zero the AGS, there. Over.

Ronald Evans (CAPCOM)

Roger. Request guidance control switch to PGNS and then back to AGS. Over.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Okay. We still have both mode control switches off. Over.

Ronald Evans (CAPCOM)

That's okay. That's good.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

And I thought I'd just take about 5 seconds here and see if I could get 000 gone, since we're fairly close to gimbal lock right now.

Ronald Evans (CAPCOM)

Eagle, Houston. That's fine.

Ronald Evans (CAPCOM)

Columbia and Eagle, Houston. About 5 minutes to LOS. Your LM jet time will be 131 plus 52, and I have the rest of the maneuver PAD if you want it now, or I can give it to you on the next time around.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Could you read it around the next time around, please?

Ronald Evans (CAPCOM)

Sure, Mike. That's fine. We'll get it to you then.

Ronald Evans (CAPCOM)

Apollo 11, Houston. About a minute and a half to LOS. You're looking great. It's been a mighty fine day.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Boy, you're not kidding.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Hello, Eagle. Houston. Do you read? Over.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Houston, this is Columbia. Reading you loud and clear. We're all three back inside; the hatch is installed. We're running a pressure check leak check. Everything's going well.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Roger, Eagle. Correction—Roger, Columbia. We copy. You guys are speedy; you beat us to the punch. We had a couple of things for you.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Oh, it was just—We wanted you to close the CO2 sensor breaker and give us an RCS onboard readout out of Eagle, but that's all. Columbia, Houston. We've got a state vector for you if you'll give us P00 in ACCEPT. Over.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Buzz says the CO2 sensor circuit breaker is IN

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Roger. Thank you very much.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

The RCS quantity was approximately 60 at A and 45 percent at B.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

And we're going P00 in ACCEPT.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Columbia, Houston. Your friendly White Team's going to be on till we get you on the way home, and we'd like to congratulate everybody on a successful rendezvous and a beautiful EVA. It was a great show for everybody. Over.

Michael Collins (CMP)

Thank you, sir. I'll tell Neil and Buzz.

Neil Armstrong (CDR)

Houston, the hatch passes its integrity check. I'm going to go to LM tunnel VENT now, and leave it there.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Roger, Columbia. We copy. That's good, and we'd like a readout on the TEP of about the time you—that Eagle selected the secondary loop. Over.

Charlie Duke (CAPCOM)

Hello, Columbia. Houston. We got the load in. You can do the VERB 66 and the computer is yours. Over.
