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.

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.
