Jack Swigert (CMP)

Hey, Joe? Is FAO ready to—do you—or are you ready to give me those items that we made optional and deleted in the solo book?

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Jack, we are not quite ready with that yet, but we will be before too long. Can you wait awhile?

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Sure can. Got lots of time.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay.

No contact for 1:15:47
Jim Lovell (CDR)

Hello, Houston; Apollo 13.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Just a passing comment, Joe. We're having lunch right now, and I just made myself a hotdog sandwich with catsup. Very tasty and almost unheard of in the old days.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

That's correct, 13. As I recall the flight plan, you're supposed to put mustard on the hot dogs and not catsup, but I guess we'll overlook that.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Right. How's everything going?

Jim Lovell (CDR)

It's going pretty good. We have about four different methods of spreading catsup, right now.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay. Jack, we'll have your update to you before too long.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Okay. Fine, Joe. We did a pit check on the Hycon camera and everything works okay.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay. Beautiful. We don't have anything else for you at the moment.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. We'd like to get the FM up now to look at some inside pictures there.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay. Stand by and I'll get a GO on this.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

That's acceptable, Fred, and meanwhile, when you guys are ready to copy, we've got an MCC-2 pad for you.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Roger that. And also if you can go to P00 and ACCEPT conveniently, we'd like to uplink.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay, Joe. You can go ahead with the P30 pad.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay. Here we go. MCC-2, SPS/G&N: 63634; plus 0.96, minus 0.23; 030:40:49.00; minus 0021.7, minus 0001.7, minus 0008.0; 080, 164, 326; N/A, N/A; 0023.2, 0:03.5—We'll give you half a second on the burn time because it's so short—0018.5; 44, 135.9, 28.1; and the rest is N/A. Comments: set stars 31 and 23; roll aline 288, pitch 205, yaw 034; no ullage, LM weight 33499, and over.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. MCC-2, SPS/G&N: 63634; plus 0.96, minus 0.23, 030:40:49.00; minus 0021.7, minus 0001.7, minus 0008.0; 080, 164, 326; N/A, N/A; 0023.2, burn time 0:03.5, 0018.5; 44, 135.9, 28.1; and the rest N/A. Set stars 31, 23; roll aline 288, pitch 205, yaw 034; no ullage, LM weight 33499.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Roger. Readback correct. I have two more short comments on them, but I want to wait just a second and make sure I understand them before I pass them to you.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

The two additional comments were just that, first of all, they biased DELTA-VC by minus 0.34 feet per second based on your EMS null bias cheeks. That's just for information. And the second one also for information is that your targeted pericynthion is 60 miles after this correction.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay, understand. For Jack's information the EMS DELTA-V bias is 3.4, and our targeted pericynthion after this maneuver is 60 miles.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

That's correct on the pericynthion. The EMS bias is 0.34, very small.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. 0.34 on the EMS DELTA-V bias.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Hey, Joe, we'll give —

Jack Swigert (CMP)

We'll give you—we'll give you the read—we'll give you the results of another null bias test for comparative purposes right before the—oh, at the proper time.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay. Real fine; and the computer is yours.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Okay. Thank you. Going BLOCK.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Okay, Houston; 13. Are you copying the torquing angles on the P52?

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay, Jack. Give us a second.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

And, 13, Houston. We have them. You can torque them.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Okay, Joe. Time of torquing 29 hours 0 minute 30 seconds.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Hey, you've got a new CAPCOM on now with the Black Crew, and we have about three items to give you, Jack.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Okay. Stand by 1. Are these updates or what?

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

I'm going to give you some high gain antenna angles for TV and the rest is just information, general words.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay. Burn attitude for TV, your pitch and yaw angles are as follows: PITCH minus 1—minus 69, YAW 180, HIGH GAIN.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay. Second point is that you're GO for MCC-2. Everything's looking good here.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

And the last item's for Jack. Jack, the preliminary indications are that you can get a 60-day extension on your—filing your income tax if you're out of the country.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

That's good news. I guess I qualify.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Yes, we were just looking at the map, and you're south of Florida so you're not in the country now. But we wondered how about your car tags. Have you taken care of those?

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Yes, I did, as a matter of fact. I think I did!

Fred Haise (LMP)

Known as, “plan ahead.”

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

And, Apollo 13, Houston. Recommend OMNI Alfa until you get to the burn attitude.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Okay, Houston; Apollo 13.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Okay, Vance. The EMS DELTA-V pass passive, the results of the no-bias pass in 100 seconds, have been from 100 to 101.5.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Roger. Copy plus 100 to plus 101.5, and that agrees fairly closely with the last one, as I recall.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Okay, Houston. We're at P40 burn attitude. Jim is on the sextant star check, and we do have a star in the sextant.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Roger, Jack. Copy. Very good.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

But we couldn't tell you whether it's 44 or not.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Okay, Houston; 13. We're a little bit ahead of ourselves. Do we have a GO to do the fuel cell purge and the waste water dump?

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Jack, that's affirm. You have a GO for those.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Okay. We're on our way.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Jim, battery A is charged now. Whenever you want to unhook it will be fine with us.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Houston, 13. Are you still planning to have TV at the scheduled time?

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Okay, 13; Houston. That's affirm. At the flight-plan-scheduled time.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Okay. All right. We've got a beautiful sight we want to show you.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Right.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

13, Houston. You can go ahead with the TV now. We're standing by.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Okay. Jack. It's coming in, and it's right in the center of our screen.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Can you—Think you could guess what that might be, Vance? Better than Charlie?

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

I don't want to start flipping coins at this point.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Okay, Vance. We're pointed just a little ways off from looking directly at the Moon. Jim is holding the camera through window 3. The Sun is coming at about 40 degrees off our left side, and what we are going to show you in just a minute is about 30 seconds of waste water dump and just show you just what it looks like. It's really fantastic.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Okay. We'd like to see that.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Okay. We saw some droplets speeding out for a little while, Jack. Now we don't see anything.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Actually, Vance, what you're looking at is solid water droplets coming out just about all the time. It lights up the whole sky around the Moon. It's Just far too fine for you to see. Now I think they're coming out a little thicker.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Okay. Yes, we see those.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Jack's complaining about seeing stars.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

FIDO says he can understand why that would perturbate a trajectory now.
