Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay. Readback correct.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

And, Aquarius; Houston. I have a service module SEP pad if you want to copy that, now. Over.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Roger, Fred. I have a service module SEP pad with the attitudes. You don't need a pad sheet for it; just any old blank sheet will do.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. I was going to say I don't—We don't hardly carry a service module SEP pad.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Yes, we'll have to change that.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. I'm using a P27 here. Go ahead.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay. The pad reads as follows and then I'll repeat the angles for you, so you can copy them. The following MCC-7, maneuver the LM to the following FDAI attitudes: roll, 000; pitch, 91.3; yaw, 000. Now do you want those attitudes repeated, Fred?

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. Following MCC-7 we're to maneuver to the following attitudes: roll, 000; pitch, 091.3; yaw, 000.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay. That's correct. And the last part of the pad is at GET 138:10:00, which is EI minus 4.5 hours, execute a push of 0.5 feet per second, four jet, plus-X; perform SM SEP; then execute pull, 0.5 feet per second, four jet, minus-X. Over.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Houston, Aquarius. Jack's entering the command module, now.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. That last Joe was execute at the GET at 138:10:00 which is EI minus 4-1/2 hours; execute a push of 0.5 feet per second, four-jet ullage; then execute SM SEP followed by a pull of 0.5 feet per second, with respect to a nomenclature on the TTCA; I think we really need an up of 0.5 and then a down of 0.5.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay, Aquarius. The last pad I had for you right now is the LM jettison pad. Similar to the—Stand by 1, Aquarius.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay, Aquarius; Houston. Request P00 and DATA for a data load. Over.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay. And I was about to say the LM jettison pad is similar to the SM SEP pad, Fred, when you're ready to copy.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Just about the same number of lines?

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay, Fred. Prior to 141:40:00, which is EI minus 1 hour, maneuver the LM to the following FDAI angles: roll, 130; pitch, 125; yaw, 012.4. The corresponding CSM gimbal angles will be roll, 291; pitch, 196; yaw, 045, and that's the pad. Over. And the computer is yours, Aquarius.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. A LM SEP pad prior to 141:40:00, EI minus 1 hour, maneuver to following attitudes: roll, 130; pitch, 125; yaw, 012.4. The corresponding CSM gimbal angles are roll, 291; pitch, 196; yaw, 045.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay. We're so efficient down here that we got an entry pad ready, Fred. Do you want to copy that for Jack? Over.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Stand by. I'll have to try to borrow his book from him.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Can we hold off on that a little bit, Joe?

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Oh, absolutely, Jim. We're well ahead. I just wanted to let you know that we had it.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay. I hope that when you send up all those uplinks to Jack that you could get them up to him quickly.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

We're shooting for less than 5 minutes.

Fred Haise (LMP)

And are you still using the computer?

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

That's a negative, Fred. The computer is yours.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

And, Fred, the computer has your target load in.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay. I just want to clarify one thing on the LM SEP pad. It appears to me that in my configuration, I could probably use a VERB 49 loading in 622, yaw, pitch, and roll, in that order; and then being able to fly out at 5018 in roll, pitch, and yaw. Is that correct?

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Stand by; I'll verify it, Jim.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Okay, Joe. And while you're doing that I've got a question about the command module checklist.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay, Jack. Go ahead with your question.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Okay. Either I copied the circuit breaker wrong, or—I can't read it. Comes down just about the—oh, about the 20th one down, after panel 276, where it says CB INSTRUMENTATION POWER CONTROL 3 and 4, open. The next circuit breaker on panel 5—I—Would you give that to me again?

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Roger. That's CB ESSENTIAL INSTRUMENTATION POWER, MAIN B. Over. And it's, closed.

Jack Swigert (CMP)

Okay. I just can't, right—I just can't read my writing, ESSENTIAL INSTRUMENTATION POWER MAIN B, closed.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Roger. The word we have is that you can't make a VERB 49 maneuver to the LM jettison attitude because those are FDAI angles we gave you, they don't correspond to the gimbal angles for the load; it'll have to be a manual maneuver. Over.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

And mind out for gimbal lock.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Roger. We're looking at LM current, to see if Jack has started his preheat, and we haven't seen it yet. Is he doing okay down there?

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Houston, Jack said he's already started it, and he said that in 1 more minute, he'll be up to 20 minutes.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Jim, Houston. Have him let us know what his test meter reads when he's done.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

He says that he had a battery A voltage drop of 2 volts, and he'll try to look at the test meter for you right now.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

He's been looking at them, but they haven't been coming up, so far.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Do you see a current now, Houston?

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Stand by 1 on that, Jim. That's affirmative, Jim; it looks like we are seeing one now.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay. And thanks for keeping us on it.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Roger. Reminder P41 for the RCS burn.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Thanks for keeping us honest.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

We got to protect our jobs, Jim.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

We've been DPS-ing so long here.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay, Houston. I finished up the maneuvers, the AUTO maneuver in 41, but only roll and yaw needles seem to be offset. Pitch is okay.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay, Jim. We copy. Stand by. Aquarius, Houston. We recommend PGNS MODE CONTROL to ATT HOLD. Save a little gas and stand by on the error needles.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Aquarius, Houston. Did you call?

Fred Haise (LMP)

Roger, Joe. Figured, if we're going to do this burn in PGNS now, I ought to give you an update on the contingency book pages 32, 33, and 34, because the last time we went through this portion, we were burning it in ACS.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay, Fred. Stand by. We've been talking about possibly having you do it in ACS. We recommend at this time that you do an ACS to PGNS aline, the 400 plus 3 procedure only. Over.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Roger. We recommend that you perform this burn in AGS, as you did the last midcourse manuever; we think it will save gas. Over.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay. Joe, do you want me to line up the same way we did the last one, too?

Fred Haise (LMP)

And, Joe, Jack just handed me some injector temperatures, if you want to read these on … so I can plug them in.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Roger. Go ahead with those.

Fred Haise (LMP)

Okay. 5 Charlie, 14.0; 5 Dogs, 3.7; 6 Able, 3.5; 6 Bravo, 4.1; 6 Charlie, 4.2; 6 Delta, 3.8.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay. Copy those, Fred.

Joe Kerwin (CAPCOM)

Okay, Jim. Our recommendation on this burn is that you maneuver to the burn attitude, in PGNS MIN IMPULSE, then do a body-axis aline, 400 plus 5, followed by 400 plus 0, and then do the burn in AGS. Over.

Jim Lovell (CDR)

Okay. Now we're spinning it with the PGNS, what you gave us for a PGNS attitude. Is this the wrong one? Do you want me to just to aline up the Earth as I did before in the last midcourse?
