Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Roger. We copy, and could you give us the frame number on that last picture, please?

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. We've been writing them all down, Vance, as we went, but that one turned out to be 29.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Roger. Twenty-nine, Fred.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay, Jack says I can't read the camera very well. It should be 28 based on our start frame.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

13, Houston. Understand, though, the number showing that you read on the camera was 28. Is that affirm?

Fred Haise (LMP)

Yes. The readability of that thing is like, you know, half a frame one way or the other; so, 28, I think, is a good number.

Fred Haise (LMP)

I'll have to not wear it out before Jack gets there.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Sounds like that music's a pretty nice thing to have on a long voyage.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Fred, did you get any MASTER ALARMS up there about 5 or 10 minutes ago? Folks thought they saw some here and they were curious about it.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Yes. We got another O2 FLOW HIGH on—I guess it was about 5 minutes ago.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Vance, what the people down there might have been seeing is our testing.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Roger. Testing the CAUTION and WARNING?

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Yes. We were rigging the siren device over the MASTER ALARM, and we were running a test on it.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Okay. Good enough. And anytime you're ready to copy, I've got a pad P37 block data.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Okay. Go ahead, Vance.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Okay. P37 block data, starting with GETI. 025:00, 5119, minus 165, 071:08; 035:00, 7733, minus 165, 070:36; 045:00, 6208, minus 165, 094:52; 060:00, 5993, minus 165, 118:53. Over.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Okay. Stand by 1 minute.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Okay. 025:00, 5119, minus 165, 071:08; 035:00, 7733, minus 165, 070:36; 045:00, 6208, minus 165, 094:52; 060:00, 5993, minus 165, 118:53.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Roger. That's all correct.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

We're starting our presleep checklist and no medication.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Okay. The Doc says very good.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

And, Houston, is there any onboard readouts that you don't have from us.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Stand by 1. We need the LM/CM DELTA-P for one thing, and I'll check back in a minute with the others.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay. And we still have the vent valve open. We'll close it one of the last things and looking at LM/CM DELTA-P right now and I see 0.5 in psi indicated.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Only other readouts we need are those on page 3-13 of the flight plan. BAT C, pyro BAT A, pyro BAT B, RCS A, B, C, and D readings, and DC INDICATOR select main A or B.

Fred Haise (LMP)

And, Vance, we're still charging BAT B. Did you want to dispense with that in a few minutes?

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Okay, Vance, I've got your readouts on page 3-13 of the flight plan.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Okay, BAT C is 37, pyro BAT A is 37, pyro BAT B is 37, RCS A 94 percent, B 95 percent, C 93 percent, D 96 percent.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Okay. In answer to the battery-charging questions, I calculate it should be fully charged at 12:35. Play that one, though, the same as the waste vent. If you want to do it earlier because you're turning in, why that's fine with us.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay, we'll continue on with a few other things we got to get done, and just before turning in, we'll check with you, and you can remind us then.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Houston, Apollo 13. Give me a call when you're ready for E-memory dump.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

This is Houston, 13. You are weak. Please repeat.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Okay, Vance, give me a call when you're ready for our E-memory dump.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Okay, 13. We're not quite ready yet. We'll give you a call when we're ready.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Okay, Vance. I understand you're ready.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Negative, GUIDO isn't quite ready yet.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Okay. I thought I heard you call us.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

But we're ready now, Jack, so GUIDO says he's ready to take it.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay, Vance. Requesting clearance now to turn the vent valve back to CLOSE again, and also the battery charge off.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Roger. That's fine with us, Jim. Proceed.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

We think the spacecraft's looking in good shape. Nobody has any comment down here before you hit the hay.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay. Row do they think we stand on the way of consumables so far?

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

You're looking in good shape in all respects—consumables-wise.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Okay, go ahead, Vance.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Just the last comment, Jack. Would you clear Hal, please, so he doesn't burn his lights out there tonight?

Jack Swigert (CMP)

No, I—I was just—I'll do that for you.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

And we'll see you in the morning, huh?

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Okay. It'll be just a minute or 2 yet. We have to finish up a couple more chores.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

What do you mean? It is morning.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

It's been a long day, huh?

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Yes, it sure was.

No contact for 10:22:29
Jim Lovell (CDR)

Hello, Houston. Houston, Apollo 13. Over.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Good morning, 13. This is Houston. How are you?

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Read you loud and clear. We had a fairly good night's sleep.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay. Real fine. At your leisure, you can give us radiation reports, I guess. We are getting a consumables update together for you, and a few other little details whenever you are ready to talk. About the only major thing on the spacecraft is that it's been getting farther away.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay. Well, that's to be expected, I guess.

Fred Haise (LMP)

And we're starting to charge battery A, Houston.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Roger on battery A, Fred. EECOM says battery B looks real good.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay. For information, Fred was on COMM last night; and he was over in the left-hand seat, and if you want our radiation readings, we just goofed. We left them all in the suits which are now nicely tucked away. We are going to get out Jack's suit in an hour or so anyway, and we'll get his dosimeter out if you wanted to get the reading on that one.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay. That will be satisfactory.
