Jim Lovell (CDR)

And, it's getting a little warmer in here now. Thank you.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Duck blinds are always warmer, Jim, when the birds are flying.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Jack, I've gotten so used to flying attitude with the TTCA, I won't be able to do it normally.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

I said I've gotten so used to flying attitude with the translational control, I won't be able to do with the ACA.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Aquarius, we see your glycol temperature getting up there. If you want to make it a little warmer, or you can try putting your SUIT TEMP valve to HIGH, if you haven't already got it there.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Aquarius, something we're thinking about right now is, if we can do it without using a lot of RCS, it would be to our advantage timewise to try to get an alinement.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay. You mean a P52?

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

A combination of 51 and 52.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

I'll see what we can do, Jack.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Okay. And we'd planned to use the Moon and the Sun for that.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Aquarius, Houston. On panel 16, we'd like for you to close the CROSS TIE BAL LOADS breaker, please.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

And it looks like we could support a—an alinement in a few minutes, if you'd be willing to go ahead with that.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Jack, it sounds good. I think from our position here, we know where the Sun and Moon are and it's strictly going to be a pitch maneuver. But I think we can save some gas. I'll see what we can do.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

We're all set to go. Are you going to ship us up a REFSMMAT?

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Yes, we are. Stand by 1.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

The Sun feels wonderful. It's shining in the rendezvous window.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

And, Aquarius, before we can ship you a load, we'll have to have, on panel 11, under COMM, the UPDATA LINK circuit breaker closed.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Roger. It'll be a few —

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Okay. And it'll be a few minutes yet, Jim. We're still cranking it up.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. Stay with it, Jack, and I'll go back to data.

Fred Haise (LMP)

I got BAT in about 33-1/3 percent on that uplink. Too fast alarm.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Say again on that, Fred.

Fred Haise (LMP)

I just got another uplink too fast when I took the DATA switch back off—It's happening, I guess, about a third of the time.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Aquarius, Houston. We're ready with your load if you'll give us DATA please.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Going to DATA. You got it.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Aquarius, Houston. After the uplink, you'll have to set the drift and the REFSMMAT flag as on page 8 of the contingency book, steps 5 and 6.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Page 8, steps 5 and 6. Roger.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. Are you done with the computer now, Jack?

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Negative. We'll give you the word.

Flight

Roger. Aquarius, we're through with it, it's your computer.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

And, Aquarius, Houston; take option 1 on a P52 when you get to it. And I've got some ball angles for a Sun and Moon.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. We want an option 1 and you've got some ball angles for Sun and Moon. And right now, Jim has the Sun pretty well squared away right in the middle of AOT.

Fred Haise (LMP)

And have you got some plan in vectors for us, Jack?

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Okay, Fred-o. For the Sun, I've got 246; for the Moon I've got 250.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Are you talking about ball theta angles?

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Negative. I was—I was reporting the code for NOUN 70.

Flight

They're in the computer, Fred.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay, Houston. We have the Sun marks and I'll start up at pitch now to go over and pick up the Moon.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Roger.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Just as a note of interest in this dock configurations for P52s, the command module docking probe is right down the middle of—the docking light, rather, is right down the middle of the detent. And when the Sun flashes on, it really makes it difficult.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Just like the simulator.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Yes. It was good training.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Well, Jack, that's what it says the torquing angles are.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

We haven't got them yet.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Aquarius, hold on to torquing angles, please.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Jim, the reason for the delay is that we're not seeing the data yet. We're having to check a point here; and as soon as they come up, we'll let you know what to do with them.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay. We had a large NOUN 105 of—what—112, and our torquing angles, Jack, are minus 01713, minus 03278, minus 01395.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Roger. Minus 01713, and we see them now.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Aquarius, do you have a star close by there you could check?

Jim Lovell (CDR)

I'll look around, Jack. I was just trying to get a check on the Moon, again, to see if those angles were indeed true, and we got the Moon back again and centered.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay, Jack. What you're reading now the angles? We had the Moon centered, and it's pretty close to what we have on the 8 ball, I guess. Close enough for any entry that we'd like to do.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Roger. And I'm told that Denubla—Denebola and Regulus are nearby if you wanted to make a star check.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay. I'm going to start pitching around again, and I'll see if I can pick them up. I have Orion out here to my left a little bit, but it's pretty close to the—oh, here. I've got Sirius. That's a nice one. How about that?

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Aquarius, is Jack sitting on the rumble seat there?

Fred Haise (LMP)

He was. He just headed upstairs to take another look around.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Okay. I got a minor addition to the entry checklist for him. This time it's in the —

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. Stand by 1. He has that in his pocket.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

What I'm doing, Jack, is just—I'm pitching over now. I'm going to pick up another star. Sirius was just too far off. I thought I was going to use too much gas getting there.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

By the time I get alined in the—in the AOT—be nice if we didn't have Odyssey attached, we could just AUTO—AUTO maneuver over to these things.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Looks to us like you've got her alined, Jim, so I wouldn't worry about it too much.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Yes. I'm pretty confident that the platform's fairly decent.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Aquarius, Houston. We need an E MOD VERB 74, when you've got a chance, please.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Okay, Jack. On your entry checklist, on page 2-5. Down there on step 9, where it says 152 degrees pitch at .05g, adjacent to that, so that Recovery can see you better on the way down, we want you to turn your S-BAND, POWER AMPLIFIER to HIGH. Over.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Okay. Turn S-BAND, POWER AMP to HIGH at .05g time.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Aquarius, Houston. We're considering doing the midcourse with PGNS, unless you'd rather do it in AGS.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

No. PGNS is fine with me. I just aline myself up with the old ball again. So I've got you foresighted again, but any way you want to do it.

Jack Lousma (CAPCOM)

Like you say, you might as well go first class.
