Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Okay. Good readback. You got it.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Aquarius, Houston, I have some additional entry data that goes with the pad I just read up. It's five items. Let me know when you're ready to copy. It's on a maneuver pad.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. I'll try to squeeze them in there, Jack. I'm rapidly running out of pads.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Okay. It's N/A all the way down to NOUN 61. Your latitude is minus 21 —

Fred Haise (LMP)

Hold on a minute; hold on. You need the—Hold on, Jack, I need the other pad book, that CSM pad.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Okay. NOUN 61: latitude, minus 21.67, minus 165.37, 1163.1, 36292, 142:41.02. Read back.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. NOUN 61; minus 21.67, minus 165.37. 1163.1, 36292, 142:41.02.

Fred Haise (LMP)

And you should have high bit rate now, Jack.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Okay, Fred. We're getting it now.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Did you have readouts on our quad temps to know when we can start? We're taking a time hack. We'd just like a verification with you.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Roger. Your quad temps look good from here.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay, Houston; Aquarius. We're going to stop PTC at this time.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Roger, Aquarius. Go ahead.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Negits on my last, Fred.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay, Jack. How do you read now?

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. I thought you called, Jack. We're maneuvering around here to fish for the Earth.

Fred Haise (LMP)

And, Houston, Aquarius. How's the ASA package temp look now?

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Okay, Fred. The ASA package temp is looking good. It's around 98 degrees, and we'd like to see it go up about 15 to 20 degrees.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. Why don't you give me the word before I proceed with the AGS. We really don't need it right this instant.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Roger. We'll be watching it.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Aquarius, Houston. The ASA package temp is up now so you can activate the AGS.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay, Jack. So we can make sure and get our timer set here, I wondered when your—you've got about 48 minutes to the burn which should be coming up pretty quick—you'd give us a hack so we could set our event timer at 12.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Roger, Fred. I understand you want a mark at 17 minutes prior to the burn. Is that affirm?

Fred Haise (LMP)

Roger. We think we got it set now. We just wanted to check it. If we don't, then I'll set it to 13, and you can give me another hack at 47 to go.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

My mistake. It was 33 —

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Roger. It was reading 33 on my mark. Right?

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. You got about 105:03 GET now down there?

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

That's affirmative, Fred. Going through 105:03:45.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay, Jack. Give me the next number you want me to set then, and I'll take another hack here.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Roger. You're counting up, right?

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Okay, Fred. On my mark, be 35 minutes to the burn.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

We missed her, Fred. Let's get it on the next minute.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Okay, Aquarius. On my mark, it's going to be 34 minutes to the burn, and you'll be reading 36. Stand by.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. We got it cranked up.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay, Houston. We have our attitude set.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

I hope the guys in the back room who thought this up right knew what they were saying.

Fred Haise (LMP)

And I'm looking through the AOT there, Jack, and the Sun's right in the top and it's about maybe 2 degrees to the right of the cursor. So that looks real good.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Okay, Aquarius. The attitude looks good here and your choice when you want to start the burn.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

We're counting down, aren't we, or do you want us to start any time?

Jim Lovell (CDR)

You guys are getting easy.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

It's not time critical, Jim.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

I understand.

Fred Haise (LMP)

And, Houston, we reset our clock and we're making the burn in about—I'll give you a hack here at 2 minutes to go.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Roger, Fred. And let us know when you're going to ullage, will you?

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. Stand by. 2, 1.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Three minutes to go. Correction, 2 minutes to go, Jack.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Roger. Two minutes. We got it.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Aquarius, Houston. Check engine gimbal off, please.

Fred Haise (LMP)

It's verified to off. And -

Fred Haise (LMP)

ENGINE ARM to DESCENT.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. You're looking at 470.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Roger. 7.4 and I had about 0.2 showing, I guess, when we started.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Roger. We verify that, Okay, Aquarius. Trim it to 7.6.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. You want plus-X now to get 7.6. Is that correct?

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. You're looking at it, Houston.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Okay. Looks good. Nice work.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Okay, Aquarius. We're ready to follow you through on setting up PTC and powerdown. Your choice.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. We're pressing into getting PTC established right now.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Aquarius, Houston. We'd like to change the number of yaw pulses we gave you before as 21. We'd like to reduce that to 12. Twelve pulses yaw right, and that'll take you about 3 seconds to get them in if you don't want to count them.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. We'll make it 12 versus 21.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay, Houston. I'm just about there now and as soon as I get 90, we'll start damping rates.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay, Houston. I'm trying to damp rates now. We're at the proper roll attitude and pitch.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Working a little bit better this time.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Are you copying any attitudes down there, rates, et cetera?

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Okay, Aquarius. We're seeing some extremely low rates at this time, really below our capability to measure them.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Houston, I think I've got pitch and roll just about squared away. I let yaw just slightly drift; it's drifting in a clockwise direction and I'm about all set now to put in my 12 clicks to the right.
