Fred Haise (LMP)

Well, it's time for a little grits again here, Vance.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Understand. Some grits, huh? Chow. Bon apetit.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Roger. Just expect that same CAUTION AND WARNING to come on again. And you want us to keep warning you of that thing?

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Roger, Jim. Just expect a CAUTION AND WARNING to come on the same as it did about an hour ago.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Go ahead, Houston. We've lost …

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Roger. How are you reading me now, Jim?

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

13, Houston. How do you read now?

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay. Read you good now. Seems like we've had a little trouble with the COMM today.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Yes. I guess it's partly because you are further out. We just wanted to tell you that you were going to get that CAUTION WARNING that you just got.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

And I won't bother you with those calls anymore, unless you especially want them.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

That's okay, Vance. You don't have to call us about that, unless it's something serious.

Fred Haise (LMP)

We just ate a can of ham salad and that was an experience.

Fred Haise (LMP)

It's really kind of like eating on the sly. Chasing it around.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Right, we're not doing anything right now, Vance, we're just getting curious, we could start the LM entry procedures, and get everything squared away, and then when the TV comes up at 55 hours, we can just use it for the TV, and we wouldn't be worrying about checking out the SHe tank pressures and everything like that.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Okay, let us mull that one a minute here, and I'll get right back with you.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Also, Houston, Apollo 13. We'd like to move up the waste water dump and maybe the O2 fuel cell purge a little bit early, if we could.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Jim, you're clear to go on into the LM, and just advise though that the TV time is still fixed at 55 hours, and—so we'll be standing by to support your entry and we'll get back with you on a minute—in a minute on the O2 fuel cell purge and the waste water dump.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

And also request your LM/CM DELTA-P which was on the flight plan for 53 hours. What did you vent it down to? Over.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

We have 1.7 now. We vented it down to that figure.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Okay, you vented down to 1.7, and what did it start at?

Jim Lovell (CDR)

It was about 1.1, Vance.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Roger, copy.

Fred Haise (LMP)

What do you read for suit pressure down there?

CapCom

We're reading 4.3, Fred.

CapCom

Go ahead, Apollo 13.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

We'd like another confirmation, when we closed the tunnel vent valve back to LM/CM DELTA-P, we were reading about 1.7—1.75, and it slowly went up now to about—oh, I'd say a little less than 2.2. Seems to be holding there—Is there a lag in the gaging system?

CapCom

Okay. We'll—we'll ask that question. Stand by.

CapCom

Apollo 13, Houston.
