Jim Lovell (CDR)

Our REPRESS package pressure is 820.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Okay. REPRESS pressure 820. Thank you.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Jim, could you switch your BIOMED switch to the position opposite to where it is now? We are getting a subcarrier, but no data. Over.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Now you know, Houston, I don't have BIOMED on.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Okay. And we have a small addition to the procedure that was read up to you earlier, which involves power transfer from the LM to the CSM.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay, Houston. Go ahead.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Okay. At the end of the procedure, after the step BAT 5 and 6, OFF, add the following: circuit breakers, panels—panels 11 and 16, ASCENT ECA CONTROL, both open. Over.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay. After the step BAT 5 and 6, OFF, step 3 will be circuit breakers panels 11 and 16 ASCENT ECA CONTROL, both open.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

That's correct, Jim. And this is to guard against a single-point failure that—a remote possibility that would preclude you from getting the batteries back on.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay. We just had a battery warning … Battery 2.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Stand by, Jim. The COMM's no good here right now.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Houston, Aquarius. How do you read now?

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Go ahead. Loud and clear.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay. We just had a battery warning MASTER ALARM, and it looks like it's battery 2.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Roger, Houston—This is Houston. Could you close the POWER AMP circuit breaker, and we'll get some high bit rate?

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Okay. And we need high bit rate.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Are you picking it up, Houston?

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Roger. And we want to open the BAL LOAD CROSS TIE on panel 16. Over.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Open the BAL LOAD CROSS TIE breaker on panel 16. Over.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Open BALANCE LOAD CROSS TIE breaker on 16. Roger.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

If you're getting high bit data, we could do an OFF/RESET and go back on on battery 2. We're standing by for that.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Okay. Could you turn off battery 2, and leave it off and let us look at it?

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Say again. You want us to turn off battery 2, and leave it off until you look at it?

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay. Battery 2 coming off the line.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Okay, Aquarius. So you want to stay in this configuration for awhile, and let's look at the battery.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Roger. We'll stay in this configuration.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Want to close the BAL LOADS circuit breaker back now.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

13, Houston. We want to close the BAL LOADS circuit breaker on panel 16 now, again.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

We have it closed; the closed—BALANCE LOADS circuit breaker is closed.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Aquarius, Houston. Request RANGE FUNCTIONS switch to RANGE …

Jim Lovell (CDR)

All right. RANGE FUNCTIONS switch going to RANGE.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Jim, on the battery problem, we have determined that it is not overcurrent or reverse current. We suspect it's over-temp, but don't know for sure, so we're going to watch it for awhile.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Jim, Charlie has some procedures to read up for you here; I think you'll need your activation checklist, if it's handy.

Vance Brand (CAPCOM)

Aquarius, that's the contingency checklist.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay. I'll just—Okay. Stand by, Charlie.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay, Charlie. I've got the contingency checklist, and standing by.

Charlie Duke

Okay, Jim. We'd like you to turn to page—page 24, which is the “30-Minute Activation,” and this is going to be a procedure for the mid-course burn that we got coming up at 105 with the AGS up. Over.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Roger. On the midcourse at 105, and I'm on page 24.

Charlie Duke

Okay; “30-Minute Activation,” omit steps 1, 2, and 3; perform step 4, “RCS system A/B-2.” Over.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Roger. Omit steps 1, 2, and 3; perform step 4.

Charlie Duke

Roger. And on the “EPS Activation,” same page, perform step 1; and in step 2, perform line number—line number 6, “EPS DISPLAY-CLOSE.” Over.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay. On “EPS Activation,” perform step 1, and perform step 2, line 6 only; is that correct?

Charlie Duke

That's affirmative, Jim. The rest of the stuff is already closed at this time, so that's all we'll have to do is close the EPS DISPLAY breaker.

Charlie Duke

All right. Turn to page 25. On page 25, omit step 3; perform step 4. On step 4, last line, scratch “CB(16) EPS: INVERTER 2, closed.” Over.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Roger. Omit step 3; perform step 4, except for the last line. Circuit breaker 16, EPS INVERTER 2, closed.

Charlie Duke

Roger. That's correct. On step 5, perform step 5. Under “Primary Glycol Loop Activation,” step 1, line 1, “CB(16) ECS: DISPLAY—CLOSE.” That's a crew option; you can have it if you want to. Omit the rest of step 1 and step 2. Perform step 3. Over.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay. On primary glycol loop activation, crew option on step 1, first line; the rest of it we'll omit. Step 2, we'll omit, and we'll do step 3.

Charlie Duke

That's affirmative, Jim, with the following DELTAs on step 3, and if you'll turn to page 26, I'll give you the DELTAs on the activation circuit breaker list. Over.

Charlie Duke

Roger. On line 1, correction, row 1, under AC BUS A: TAPE RECORDER should be open; DECA GIMBAL, open. All the other ones as shown on the page. Over.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay. On row 1, AC BUS A: TAPE RECORDER and DECA GIMBAL will be open. All the rest as shown.

Charlie Duke

Roger. And we don't know the status of your windows. If you—During this burn, we're going to have to look out the forward window to get the alinement with the COAS, so you might need the commander window heater and you can, of course, use that breaker if needed, since we do have the AC power. On row 2—Go ahead. Over.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

I don't think we'll need it, Charlie.

Charlie Duke

Okay; fine, Jim. On row 2, under RCS SYSTEM A: ASCENT FEED 2 and ASCENT FEED 1 should be open. Under FLIGHT DISPLAYS: MISSION TIMER should be open; GASTA, open; ORDEAL, open. Under AC BUS A: GASTA, open. The rest are as shown on the page. Over.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay. On row 2, we're going to open up ASCENT FEED 2 and ASCENT FEED 1 under RCS SYSTEM A. We're going to open up the MISSION TIMER, and FLIGHT DISPLAYS: the GASTA and the ORDEAL; and the AC BUS A: the GASTA.

Charlie Duke

That's affirmative. Okay. Row 3, under PROPELLANT: DESCENT HELIUM REG/VENT should be open. Under HEATERS: RENDEZVOUS RADAR STANDBY, open; LANDING RADAR, open. Under STAB/CONTROL: ATCA (PGNS), open. Under ED and LIGHTING: all four open. Over.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay. Row 3, under PROPELLANT—propulsion: the DESCENT HELIUM REG/VENT will be open: the STANDBY RENDEZVOUS HEATER will be open and the LANDING RADAR HEATER circuit breaker will be open. I just changed antennas; and, keeping on down the line, ATCA PGNS will be open and the last four circuit breakers, two under ED and two under LIGHTING, will be open.

Charlie Duke

That's affirmative. Okay. Under row 4, under ECS: GLYCOL PUMP AUTO TRANSFER, close. Under COMM: UP DATA LINK, open; VHF B and VHF A should be open. Under PGNS: LGC/DSKY, open; IMU OPERATE, open. Over.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay. Under row 4, the AUTO TRANSFER will be close. UPDATA LINK, open; VHF A and B, open; DSKY, open; and IMU OPERATE, open.

Charlie Duke

That's affirm. On the last row, the only DELTA is under the CROSS TIE BUS and it should be open. Over.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Say that again, Charlie.

Charlie Duke

Okay. Under the last row, under EPS is the only DELTA and that is under the CROSS TIE BUS. It should go open. Over.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Roger. The CROSS TIE BUS should go open.

Charlie Duke

That's affirm. Going on to page 27, Activation, panel 16. Under RCS SYSTEM Bravo: ASCENT FEED 1, ASCENT FEED 2 should be open. Under PROPULSION: PQGS should be open; ASCENT HELIUM REG, open. Over.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay. Line 1, on panel 16, ASCENT FEEDs 1 and 2 will be open. And the PQGS will be open, and the ASCENT HELIUM REG will be open.

Charlie Duke

That's affirmative. On the next three rows, we only get the nine DELTAs, so I'll go through the next three rows completely and then you can read those back. Under LIGHTING —

Charlie Duke

Under LIGHTING; FLOOD, open; TRACK, open. Under ED LOGIC—Correction, under ED: LOGIC, open. Under STAB/CONTROL: DESCENT ENGINE OVERRIDE, open. Under ECS: SUIT FLOW CONTROL, open. Under row 3, COMM: DISPLAY, open; VHF A TRANSMITTER, open; VHF B RECEIVER, open. Under ECS: DISPLAY, that's crew option. Last row, under EPS: INVERTER 2, open. Over.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay. On the last three rows, we have FLOOD and TRACK circuit breakers, row 2, open; LOGIC POWER B, open; DESCENT ENGINE OVERRIDE, open; SUIT FLOW CONTROL, open. On the third row—row, DISPLAY, open; VHF A and—VHF—VHF A TRANSMITTER, open; VHF B RECEIVER, open. And under ECS: we have DISPLAY, open, at crew option. And the last one, INVERTER 2 under EPS, will be open.

Charlie Duke

Roger. That's a good readback. Under that ECS DISPLAY, it shows it closed. If, with it closed, you can have some readout of—onboard readout of your ECS system—draws a lot less than a half amp so it's up to you whether you want it or not. Okay, on page 28.

Charlie Duke

On page 28, step—perform step 4 with the following changes in the warning light status. Under the warning lights, you will probably—you will have ASCENT PRESSURE and an LGC light. Scratch “RCS A and RCS B REG.” Under caution lights, you'll have a PRE AMPS light. Over.
