Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay, 13; Houston. The booster says that the propulsive dump is concluded; he now has the nonpropulsive vents open and what you see is a normal phenomenon and it should go on for another 5 minutes or so.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

And, while I've got you, 13, at your convenience, we'd like to have the results of the EMS bias tests that you did pre-TLI and pre-SEP.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Okay, Joe. The TLI—the DELTA-V no bias test prior to TLI, we had a 0.8, and post-TLI, it was 1.0.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay, Jack. Copy that. Thank you very much. Incidentally, as your tracking gets better and better, the size of MCC-2 is getting lower and lower and figures to be somewhere between 20 and 30 feet per second now.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay. We have a PTC REFSMMAT ready, if you're ready to go P00 and ACCEPT, we'll stick it in there.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Okay. I'm P00 and ACCEPT, Joe.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Apollo 13, Houston. We'll have a handover in half a minute or so. You may get a momentary loss of strength.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Apollo 13, Houston. The computer is yours. Over.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay, Houston. Do you copy 13's torquing angles on the P52?

13, Houston. Leave them up just a second, and we'll get them down.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

13, Houston. Okay. We got them.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay. The time of torquing was 5 hours 30 minutes and 40 seconds.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Hello, Houston; Apollo 13.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay. I just got all hooked up to get in my COMM system here, and I just wanted to check out. I've got my suit stowed, a few other odds and ends done, and I'm back in business again.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay. Good deal. We're kind of hanging loose down here. I've got a lift-off plus 15 pad. There's no hurry to read it up, so let us know when you're ready.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay, Houston. Go ahead with the pad.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay, Jim. Lift-off plus 15 pad: GETI 015:00, DELTA-VT 5622, longitude minus 165, and GET 400K 047:04. Over.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay, Houston. Lift-off plus 15: GETI 015:00, 5622, minus 165, 047:04. Is that correct?

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Roger. We'd like to have the ATTITUDE SET switch back to GDC, if you're finished with your aline. It gives GNC down here a telemetry problem.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

I'm just going to give them one more aline here.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay. No rush.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Roger. Would you please verify or tell us what S-band antenna configuration you're in, please?

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Roger. Stand by a minute, Jim. Our signal strength is getting a little low. We may have a recommendation.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

13, Houston. Are you in MANUAL or AUTO in HIGH GAIN?

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Stand by. We're in AUTO TRACK, Joe, and HIGH GAIN.
