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.

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)

That's it, Jack.

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.
