Jim Lovell (CDR)

Hey, look out that left-hand window. … I can't see a thing.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Well, is there anything … done earlier?

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay. What we do here is, …?

Jim Lovell (CDR)

… the command module.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Find the flight plan, too, while up there.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay. Why don't you recopy this procedure on page 4-42.

Fred Haise (LMP)

We going to keep a log of all the procedures?

Jim Lovell (CDR)

We ought to copy down the ones that get water, too. … Keep them all in one spot.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Aquarius, Houston. Over.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay. Speak slow because there's a lot of noise in the background. Have you completed your first 90-degree yaw maneuver? And, if you haven't, we recommend it. Over.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay. We have not. We have not completed it. We will start. We want you to monitor the maneuver. Over.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay, Jim. And I want to pass you up a short procedure for activating the S-band steerable antenna, which we'd like you to do after you complete the 90-degree yaw. Are you ready to copy? Over.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay. First, on panel 11, close the S-BAND ANTENNA circuit breaker. Then go to Activation, page 28, steerable antenna activation —

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

— and complete steps 2, 3, and 4 of Activation 28. You'll have to do a VERB 64 to get the pitch and yaw angles, and the last step is on panel 16, S-BAND ANTENNA HEATER circuit breaker to CLOSE. Over.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Joe, we didn't get all of that. We just have, “Complete steps 2, 3, and 4 of activation” and then 68 or 28.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Then do a VERB 64 to get -

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Aquarius, Houston. That procedure I just passed you, please disregard it. Over.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Disregard it. Okay. Do you want me to start my yaw maneuver now? And I'll be yawing to my right. One-way maneuver.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Roger. Right yaw is acceptable, but wait 1 before you start the maneuver.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay. You are GO to commence the yaw maneuver. If we don't have COMM after you complete the yaw maneuver, bring the power amplifier back on. Over.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Roger. Understand. We'll start the yaw.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

They're almost getting bigger and bigger, Jack. It's over here now.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Hey, you got a list … off over here.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

… to do is put water in it.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

What do I turn that to?

Jim Lovell (CDR)

… Yes … down to 270 …

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Why don't you go RATE/RATE now, before we …

Jack Swigert (CMP)

We're on the ascent tank, too.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Houston, Aquarius. Did you call?

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Negative, Houston. We did not call. How you reading us?

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Get up front and turn that antenna …

Jim Lovell (CDR)

And, Houston, could you give us an approximate time to turn off the ascent O2 in case we're losing point with you?

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Roger, Jim; and copying about half your words.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Roger, Houston. We'd like a time to go back to descent O2 in case we lose communications with you.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Jim, Houston. That's affirmative. You may go back to descent O2. Over.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Roger. Going back now.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

We're … up-side down.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Think we'll have any trouble getting that … with that … in there?

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Probably not, if everything holds together because we already made one burn.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

And the temperatures look good. When you make a burn, does that do something …?

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Well, Jack. This is going to be difficult.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

I'll tell you, we'll have to start thinking about …

Jim Lovell (CDR)

How about that … tank …?

Jim Lovell (CDR)

How much of that oxygen are you going to use for -

Fred Haise (LMP)

We got—water glycol … off. … need any more water? … again?

Fred Haise (LMP)

Yes, why don't we …?

Jack Swigert (CMP)

… out? Can you get that?

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Houston, Aquarius. Are you …?

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Aquarius, Houston. Say again, please. …

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Roger. We have a radio check at a new attitude.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay, Jim. We copy the angles. How are you receiving the voice now? Over.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Your voice is excellent.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay. Real good. You are clear. We still have a lot of noise, but if you talk slow I think we can manage.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

This is Aquarius. Go ahead.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Roger, Jim. We're trying to improve our COMM down here. We'd like to try going function switch from DOWN VOICE BACKUP to VOICE. Over.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

… DOWN VOICE BACKUP … switch going from DOWN VOICE BACKUP to VOICE.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

How do you read now, Jim?

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Aquarius, Houston. Request a short count. Over.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Aquarius, Houston. We're not reading you at all. Request you go back to DOWN VOICE BACKUP. Over.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

All right. Houston, Aquarius in DOWN VOICE BACKUP. How do you read? Over.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay, Jim, we read you now and you'd better stay in this configuration.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Aquarius, Houston. Over.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay, Jim, since we're in LOW BIT RATE now, we cannot monitor the DSKY for program alarms, et cetera, and we recommend that, in order for you to do so on board, you push in the following circuit breakers: On panel 11 and panel 16 the ANUNCIATOR/DOCK/COMPONENT circuit breakers. That will allow you to monitor your DSKY warning lights. Over.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Roger, Houston. Would you say one more time … please?

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay, Jim. The circuit breakers are the ANUNCIATOR/DOCK/COMPONENT circuit breakers on panel 11, third row, far right, under LIGHTING; and on panel 16, also under LIGHTING, second row, third from the left. Over.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Roger, Houston. We have those two circuit breakers—engaged.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Aquarius, this is Houston. Go ahead.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Joe, it appears that the best detent possibly to put the stars in the AOT, would be either number 2 or 4. The rendezvous radar antenna is now in the way. You might think of a procedure to get rid of it with minimum power and then we maybe we'll be able to see stars in a couple of minutes here in a lower detent.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay, Jim. I think I understood that the rendezvous radar antenna is in the way and you would like a procedure to get it out of the way. Is that right?

Jim Lovell (CDR)

That's affirm; at the proper time, and with minimum power.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Roger. Understand. We'll work that.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Aquarius, Houston. Over.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay. Jim, we have a handover coming up on the hour; that's in a minute and a half. On the hour, we would like you to turn the S-BAND TRANSMITTER/RECEIVER switch to OFF, and 5 minutes later turn it back to PRIMARY. Over.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay, Houston. Shortly you want us to turn the S-BAND TRANSMITTER/RECEIVER to OFF; 5 minutes later, turn it back to PRIMARY.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

That's affirmative, Jim. After the handover apparently they want to make sure that they lockup with you and not the IU.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Roger. And let me know when you want me to turn it off.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Roger. You can turn it off now.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

And, Houston, when do you want me to turn that S-BAND TRANSMITTER/RECEIVER off?

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Aquarius, Houston. Turn it off now.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Turning it off now.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay, Aquarius; Houston. We have data back and I assume we have COMM. Over.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Houston, This is Aquarius. The COMM is very, very, very noisy. Over.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Aquarius, Houston. Copy that. It's noisy on our end, too; stand by while we think about it.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Houston, Aquarius. I am unable to … now …

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Jim, Houston. I think you just called, but I didn't copy you.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Aquarius, Houston. Over.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Jim, recommend you push the POWER AMPLIFIER circuit breaker on panel 16 in. Over.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Roger. POWER AMPLIFIER circuit breaker panel 16 going in.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

POWER AMPLIFIER circuit breaker is in.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay, Jim. How is the COMM now? Over.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

A lot of background noise. Let me turn off the SQUELCH.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay. You're quite a bit better.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Whenever I enable SQUELCH, I lose you. Over.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Roger. Stand by. You are much better down link.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay, Jim. This is Houston. We recommend that you set the FUNCTION switch from DOWNVOICE BACKUP to VOICE. Over.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Roger. FUNCTION switch going from DOWNVOICE BACKUP to VOICE.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay, Jim. How's the COMM now?

Jim Lovell (CDR)

FUNCTION switch … There's still a lot of background noise, Joe.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay. We'll look at it some more. Your COMM down to us is excellent now.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Aquarius, Houston. Go ahead.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

The noise we're experiencing is similar to what we had sometime before when you switched stations.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Roger, Jim. INCO is checking into what we can do about the noise. It may be a problem with the new site.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Aquarius, Houston. Is the noise any better now? Over.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

This is Aquarius. Negative.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Aquarius, Houston. Go ahead.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Roger. Will you let us know when you want us to yaw another 90 degrees right?

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Will do, Jim. Stand by 1.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay, Jim. We're ready now to yaw another 90 degrees to the right.
